Event description

Description

The charity WORLDwrite is delighted to be screening some of its greatest documentaries on Saturday 9th February 2019.

1917: Why the Russian Revolution matters

Produced to mark the centenary of the Russian Revolution in 2017, this myth-busting documentary brings to life humanity’s greatest experiment in social change. Through compelling interviews, incisive analysis and extraordinary archive, it explores the context, causes and consequences of 10 days that shook the world and went on to define politics and international relations through the rest of the twentieth century.

Crowdfunded and produced by the charity WORLDwrite with a crew of volunteer citizen TV-makers, this documentary challenges ahistorical and mythmaking approaches to this landmark event in human history.

We hope you can join us on Saturday 9th February 2019 at 2:30pm at the WORLDwrite centre in Hackney (E5 0AL) for a unique opportunity to see the film. There will be a Q&A after the screening with Ceri Dingle, the director of the film.

This event is free to attend but spaces are very limited. Please book only if you definitely wish to take part.

Please note this pioneering project relies on voluntary support, so donations of £2 or more will be asked for at the door. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served for a small charge. Bring your own beverages otherwise.
