Event description

Description

BECTU invites you to a special screening of Belonging: The Truth Behind the Headlines and Q&A. The Q&A will involve Morag Livingstone, the film's director, Stevie Dean, vice convenor at the centre of the Grangemouth dispute and Falkirk Labour controversy, whose story is at the heart of the documentary, and Pat Rafferty, Unite's Scottish secretary and leader of the Grangemouth dispute.

Belonging is an investigative feature-length documentary about where power lies in the United Kingdom. Re-examining events surrounding three industrial disputes, three governments and over three decades, the film shows the impact of government and corporate power on democracy and human rights not just for trade unionists, but for all.

In this film there are many reveals – not least a secret government plan to destroy community and collectivism. Belonging uses documents clearly showing what has long been suspected by many but not proven – until now.

Heart wrenching personal stories are told by those at the centre of these industrial disputes, not only highlighting the impact of the actions of those in power on individuals and communities, but also raising the question of what lies ahead.

From Murdoch’s purchase of The Times and The Sunday Times in 1981 through the News International dispute (1986/7), Royal Mail as it prepared for privatisation (2007/8) and a dispute at the Grangemouth Oil Refinery in Scotland (2013), Belonging explores what has happened behind closed doors of successive UK governments and the resulting impact on people’s human rights. Power: “who has it, and what do they do with it?” is as relevant today as it ever was.

This is a film that will not tell you how to think...but will ask you to think again.
