Lefty Film Club and Radical Film Network presents: The Fourth Estate

Sat 21 Nov 2015| 7:00 pm- 9:30 pm

- £3

Lefty Film Club in association with Radical Film Network presents Fourth Estate.

Produced in the UK on a zero-budget, the filmmakers spent two years contacting and interviewing journalists, organisers and critics of the corrupt industrial practices highlighted by, but not limited to, the Leveson Inquiry in 2011. This opportunity for serious consideration of the true, entrenched causes and effects of the UK’s inadequate media must not go unexplored, and the recent press scandals must not be framed in terms of the “bad apple” soundbites we’re so often fed.

The Fourth Estate examines the people and practices of the media industries. Illuminating not only specific incidences of corruption by press groups, but how the wider business as a whole, including the film and entertainment industries, has a huge amount to answer for in the state of the political economy of the west.

The screening will be followed by discussion and Q&A with Director Lee Salter. £3 donation on entry. A bar will be available for refreshments. Free popcorn or crisps with every donation. All welcome.
