OARC Sunday Screenings are back on 6 October, with Ken Loach’s classic tale of the Spanish Civil War, Land and Freedom.

The film tells the tale of a dissilusioned Liverpudlian socialist who decides to follow his principles and enlist in the international brigades to fight fascism. In Spain he discovers both solidarity and bitter political infighting.

As usual, we’ll be showing some short films from citizen journalists around the world from groups such as Indymedia, Reel News and Democracy Now from 7pm. Main film starts at 7.30pm, discussion of topics raised in the film afterwards and a strict 10pm finish, adjourning to The Star in Rectory Road for a refreshing beverage and further discussions afterwards.
