Event description

Description

Blacklisting in the UK construction industry impacted thousands of workers who were labelled 'troublemakers' for speaking out and secretively denied employment. Activists uncovered alarming links between workplace blacklisting and undercover policing. Solidarity is a film about these secretive methods used against UK activists and trade unionists.


Directed by 2016 Berwick Visual Arts & Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival artist in residence Lucy Parker, who has been working alongside members of the Blacklist Support Group for over four years. Solidarity follows meetings between activists and law students, brought together for the film, revealing the determination of a community working together to find a route to justice.

We're delighted that Lucy will be returning to Berwick to present Solidarity as part of the film's UK wide tour following its world premiere last June at Sheffield Doc Fest.

Solidarity is co-presented in Berwick with the kind support of Berwick Visual Arts and Berwick Trade Unions Council
