The Project Space, Newport

“A documentary as gripping as any thriller” Peter Bradshaw, the Guardian

3rd March 2015 was the 30th anniversary of the end of the Miner’s Strike, one of the most significant events in Britain’s recent political history. Owen Gower’s essential film is a heartfelt tribute to communities hammered by political forces. Weaving interviews with rare archive footage, this powerful and deeply moving film is a timely and vital reminder of what was a devastating attack on the British working class, of which our current political landscape is the legacy.

Dr. Steve Davies teaches and researches at Cardiff University and is a former full time trade union official. His research includes projects examining unions in Wales, how unions respond to change. He will speak about the broader lessons that we can learn today from the Miners’ Strike and why 30 years on, it remains relevant.

Still The Enemy Within is the second film of Politikino, a free monthly pop-up political cinema at The Project Space. Curated by artist-in-residence Sara Rees. The trilogy of films aims to offer opportunities to reflect on the socio-political context of Newport; its Chartist history in relation to the city’s current conditions and how wider national and global events and processes effect Newport.
