Event description

Description

BECTU invites you to a special screening of Kettling of the Voices followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Chester Yang and special guests Bryan Simpson, Unite the Union activist and Better Than Zero campaigner, Susan Matthews, activist and mother to injured student Alfie Meadows, and Matt Foot, human rights lawyer.

Kettling of the Voices (2013) explores the events and aftermath of the totemic student protest against the rise in tuition fees in the winter of 2010. The film features never-before seen images of police brutality and hears from some of the key characters still facing persecution for protesting; the narrative also highlights developments on the legality of kettling following the case heard in the European Court of Human Rights. The 2010 student protest was responsible for the politicisation of a whole generation and its consequences are many. But what does the protest say about the state of our democracy and the wider political situation today? Seven years on the screening provides a valuable opportunity to consider those questions.

Chester Yang, combined his interest in politics with his love of the creative arts during a time of growing upheaval in the country of his birth, Sierra Leone. Moving to the UK in 1996 to escape the civil war, Chester started his filmmaking career in 2000 and has since further developed his deep interest in the interplay between politics and protest in a democracy.

Writer/Producer/Director/Camera: Chester Yang
Assistant Producer: Samantha Johnson
