18 October – Breaking News and other protest shorts

An evening of shorts films on policing and portest, built around Undercurrents’ award winning documentary, Breaking News.

The film investigates how the UK police control the national news agenda. Police video surveillance at demonstrations leads to arrests of journalists and, repeatedly, reporters are released without charge once their news deadlines have passed.

Undercurrents recorded incidents of reporters being arrested for filming police misbehaviour – and even for fogretting the PIN on their Press Card! A fantastic documentary, not to be missed.

The films starts at 7.45 and will be followed by discussion.
