Showtimes and location

Film description

Power, Corruption & Lies is a series of three screenings looking at how filmmakers and artists in the UK have used film and video to express feelings of political discontent over the last 4 decades.

Featuring over 20 works spanning 1977–2019, the screenings engage with turbulent moments in history including the Thatcher government, the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, 911, the UK miners’ strike, civil wars in Yemen and Lebanon, Occupy London, The Troubles and the Falklands War.

Our hope is that, when experienced together, the films will stand in solidarity, representing a collective need to address the misuses of power.
