January’s Doc Soup!
THE ENEMY WITHIN
D: Owen Gower | UK | 2014 | 112 min | International Premiere
Winner—Audience Award, Sheffield Doc/Fest 2014
In 1984, a conservative government under Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher declared war on Britain’s unions, including the National Union of Mineworkers. Following a secret plan, the government began to close coal mines, threatening the industry, whole communities and a way of life. When 160,000 coal miners stood up for what they believed in, they began the longest strike in British history, the 1984-85 British Miners’ Strike. Through raw, first-hand stories and a wealth of rare and never-before-seen archival material, THE ENEMY WITHIN draws together personal experiences to take the audience on an emotionally powerful journey through the dramatic events of that life-changing year.
Director Owen Gower will introduce the film and answer questions following the screenings.
