Join us on Saturday 9th February 2019 for this mini festival to watch some of WORLDwrite’s greatest documentaries for free. The films being screened on the day are: 11am-11:42am Flush it: Aspirations for modern amenities in the developing world and a critique of Western low horizons are the focus of this compelling documentary. 12pm-1.44pm Women: a success story: documents the great advances of the past 100 years and celebrates women as equals in the West today. Confronting contemporary myths and prejudices that suggest the world is awash with predators, misogyny and discrimination, over 40 real women tell us we have nothing to fear and we can do anything. 2:30pm-3:46pm 1917: Why the Russian Revolution matters: To mark the centenary of October 1917, this myth-busting documentary explores the context, causes and consequences of ten days that shook the world and went on to define politics and international relations throughout the twentieth century. 4.30pm-6:31pm Every Cook Can Govern: The life, impact & works of C.L.R. James: This feature-length documentary interweaves never-before-seen footage of C.L.R. James himself with personal contributions from those who knew him and astute historical and political analysis from leading scholars of his work.
