Britain on Film :
In a time of intense public activism both at home and across the globe, the latest BFI Britain on Tour programme explores the varied and fascinating history of public protest.
From a 1910 suffragette demonstration to striking coal miners in the Rhondda Valley, from female CND protestors spanning the Tamar Bridge to the defeat of fascists at London’s Cable Street, this absorbing, illuminating collection examines the nature of protest large and small.
For causes regional and national; by 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, 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.
