An award winning documentary that gives a unique insight into one of History's most dramatic events: the 1984-85 British Miners' Strike. No experts. No Politicians.

Thirty years on, this is the raw emotional story of those who drove Britain's longest strike. The film weaves stunningly edited archive footage of the strike and never before seen interviews with the real key players of the strike: the miners themselves, accompanied by a soulful, timely soundtrack.

It is ultimately a universal tale of ordinary people standing up for what they believe in. It challenges us to look again at our past so that in the words of one miner 'we can still seek to do something about the future'.

“This is timely, important and truthful cinema, at once bitter, nostalgic and unexpectedly uplifting.”
Time Out

“Gower's film is a heartfelt tribute to the communities who were hammered by political, not economic, forces. They look bloodied, but unbowed.”
The Guardian

A bar will be open serving wines, beers and non-alcoholic drinks, popcorn and cake.
