EEFF2017: Austerity Fight + Q&A (World Premiere)
Friday 16 June
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member
what's it all about?
Documentary filmmakers Phil Maxwell and Hazuan Hashim dissect the effects and alternatives to Austerity Britain.
tell me more (don't worry, no spoilers)
The austerity policies of the Tories have targeted young and old. The NHS is chronically under funded and is being privatised. Students are leaving college with huge debts. Children, pensioners and the disabled are living in poverty and millions live precarious lives on ‘zero hour contracts’.
Austerity Fight challenges the notion that we have to live in a world where public services are cut, worker’s rights removed and poverty is a daily reality for millions, while championing equality, practical alternatives to Austerity and a vision of a world based on co-operation rather than the greed of a global super elite.
Phil Maxwell and Hazuan Hashim will also be joining author Glyn Robbins as he launches his book There's No Place: The American Housing Crisis and What It Means for the UK at 17:30 on our mezzanine floor.
