23 August – Hidden Agenda

An implicit condemnation of the repressive tactics of the British government in Northern Ireland. When an American attorney working for a humanitarian group who is investigating the torture of IRA prisoners is killed in Belfast, Inspector Kerrigan is sent to investigate the crime.

He’s joined by Sullivan’s fiancee, a lawyer working for the Intenrational League of Civil Liberties. They learn that he had been given a tape by a former British army officer named Harris that contained highly incriminating material concerning the activities of the British government.

This well-made, low-key political thriller was highly controversial upon its release because it cited real names and events in presenting its case for the existence of a conspiracy at the highest levels of the British government.

The films starts at 7.45 and will be followed by discussion led Michael Herbert of the Working Class Movement Library.

Entry to film £3 or £2 for unwaged, low waged, students or OAPs.
