Presented in Partnership with Young Film Programmers Network & Fresh Perspectives.
We invite you to join us in exploring the archive film programme: Britain on Film: Protest!, with a special discussion to follow around the current call for action around climate change.
From a 1910 suffragette demonstration to striking coal miners in the Rhondda Valley, from female CND protesters spanning the Tamar Bridge to the defeat of fascists at London’s Cable Street, Brighton on Film: Protest! is an absorbing, illuminating collection that examines the nature of protests large and small and for causes regional and national, from participants fighting for suffrage and democracy, against exploitation and inequality, for fair wages and worker’s rights, for public safety, freedom and community and in the face of war and oppression.
Sourced from the national and regional archives and newly digitised, Britain on Film: Protest! tells a story not just about specific protests and their causes, but about a tumultuous century, the constant presence of public dissent and its dynamic effects as a weapon of change – at a time when raising our voices feels more essential than ever.
After the film, join us for a discussion by special guest speakers to consider how activism and creativity can grow awareness around climate change, with a particular focus on how collaborating with young people can give us new perspectives and energy in long fought campaigns.
