BFI Britain On Film: Protest!
Wednesday 27th November 11am & 2.00pm with Optional Fish & Chip Lunch 12.45pm
Southwold Arts Centre
At a time of intense public activism both at home and across the globe, explore the varied and fascinating history of public protest in the UK. 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, this absorbing, illuminating collection examines the nature of protests large and small and for causes regional and national. Sourced from newly digitised national and regional archives it 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.
Southwold Arts Centre, St Edmunds Hall.
Tickets: £7.50 for films or £15 for films & fish (lunch must be booked in advance)
