Invisible Britain film screening + book launch Q&A

4 November @ 16:00 - 19:00

£4

Invisible Britain film screening + book launch Q&A with director/editor Paul Sng, Laura Dicken, Andrew Jackson, Inès Elsa Dalal, Myles Evans-Reid and Aysha Iqbal.

Invisible Britain: Portraits of Hope and Resilience reveals untold stories from people who have been left out of the media narrative and left behind by government policy. Featuring the work of accomplished documentary photographers, the book shows how an unprecedented world of austerity, de-industrialisation and social upheaval is affecting us all. To celebrate the publication of the book, we’re pleased to announce a screening of the film that inspired it…

Sleaford Mods – Invisible Britain shows the most relevant and uncompromising British band in years sticking two fingers up to the zeitgeist and articulating the rage and desperation of those without a voice in austerity Britain. Part band doc, part look at the state of the nation, the film features individuals and communities attempting to find hope among the ruins, against a blistering soundtrack by Sleaford Mods.

Following the screening there will be a panel Q&A with director/editor Paul Sng, curator/photographer Laura Dicken, photographers Andrew Jackson and Inès Elsa Dalal, plus Myles Evans-Reid and Aysha Iqbal, whose stories and portraits appear in the book.
