Strike: An Uncivil War preview & recorded QA – Riverside Studios

18 June @ 8:10 pm BST

Daniel Gordon’s feature documentary Strike: An Uncivil War tells the story of the Battle of Orgreave, the most violent confrontation between Miners and Police during the 1984/85 Miners’ Strike in Great Britain.

The year-long Strike was the most divisive and violent industrial dispute that Britain has ever witnessed, and using powerful personal testimony, previously hidden government documents and a treasure trove of never-before-seen archive material, Strike: An Uncivil War follows the events at Orgreave, which took place on 18 June 1984.

We are told that the outcome changed Britain for good. In reality, there were perhaps no winners; Britain was left even more divided, and deep questions remain unanswered. Witness at first hand the stories and recollections of the people on the front lines of this incredible moment in time, which split communities and the nation in two.

Strike: An Uncivil War will screen in a one-day preview event on Tuesday 18 June to mark the 40 anniversary of the Battle Of Orgreave. This event will feature a 23-minute exclusive recorded Q&A featuring Chris Peace and Kate Flannery of the Orgreave Truth & Justice Campaign, Former Miners Kevin Horne and Ian Mitchell, and the film’s director Daniel Gordon.
