Documentary / English

The heart and soul of Britain's left, portrayed through the turbulent post-war period.

Throughout this vivid portrait of a man whose career transcended politics, Tony Benn reviews the triumphs and the upsets of his personal and his private life, from his fight to retain his seat in the House of Commons after his elevation to the peerage, to his championship of the 1971-72 Upper Clyde Shipbuilders' Work-in, to his battles with a hostile mainstream press. The long-time Labour MP participated in the making of this moving and informative tribute shortly before his death in March 2014. [U]

    This is a very important film and judging by the trailer and thousands of Facebook comments, is a brilliant production. Unfortunately it was sold out almost immediately. You should definitely do more screenings.
