Film night: Spirit of ’45 (2013)

16 March 2017 (18:00) Senate House

Join us for a screening of this extraordinary film and a discussion with Ken Loach himself, exploring the topics raised and issues covered in the documentary!

An impassioned documentary about how the spirit of unity which buoyed Britain during the war years carried through to create a vision of a fairer, united society.1945 was a pivotal year in British history. 

The unity that carried Britain through the war allied to the bitter memories of the inter-war years led to a vision of a better society. The spirit of the age was to be our brother’s and our sister’s keeper. Director Ken Loach has used film from Britain’s regional and national archives, alongside sound recordings and contemporary interviews, to create a rich political and social narrative.
