The Spirit of 45
This important new film from socialist film maker Ken Loach looks back at the founding of the Welfare State, including the NHS just after the Second World War (1939-45). Many older people affected badly by proposed closures of Lewisham Hospital today remember how it was before the Welfare State and NHS existed.
This film looks back to a time when people came together to think about building a new society after the war and looks at the role politicians like Thatcher played in changing fundamental ideas about society and the individual.
The film is showing in Greenwich Picture House, The Ritzy in Brixton and Stratford East PIcture House this week. See the trailer below and go along if you can.
