The main programme for the Bristol Radical Film Festival 2017 has been announced, as the unique event which celebrates the best in thought-provoking cinema returns.
Taking place at the city’s Trinity Centre, the festival will open with the newly-released documentary Brexitannia and feature a Russian Revolution centenary double bill including the story of the Russian Revolution From Tsar to Lenin.
Hollywood musical Cradle Will Rock, which deals with labour movements, art and power in the 1930s, and Rat Film – which examines housing policy in inner-city Baltimore through the eyes of rats in the city – will also be screened.
The festival will also have a short film programme which will showcase the best of new radical short form video from around the world, along with some other wonderful rarities you won’t find at any other event in the city.
The Saturday night party will be hosted by the ghost of Victorian anarchist Emma Goldman, whose lectures and writing led her to influence thousands of people.
