THE HAPPY LANDS
Robert Rae, UK 2012 [12A], 108 mins
A Theatre Workshop Scotland Production supported by the National lottery through Creative Scotland in association with BBC Scotland.
This drama, set within a Fife mining community during the general strike of 1926, documents the harsh conditions and solidarity of people in their fight for respect and Justice. The Stringency measures, linked to the national debt and imposed by the then Conservative-Liberal politicians, bear an uncanny resemblance to the austerity measures imposed by today’s government.
Official selection Glasgow Film Festival 2013.
Discussion led by Robert Rae, with Bill Gilby, Board member, Theatre Workshop Scotland, and former UNISON Director of Executive Office & Programmes, and Jack Dunleavy, writer and contributor to Left Futures.
