We will be releasing Ken Loach's documentary film The Spirit of '45 in the UK and Ireland on 15th March, with a special nationwide satellite event on 17th March. Today we are excited that the trailer and poster for the film are finished!
1945 was a pivotal year in British history. The unity that carried Britain through the war allied to the bitter memories of the inter-war years led to a vision of a better society. The spirit of the age was to be our brother’s and our sister’s keeper. Director Ken Loach has used film from Britain’s regional and national archives, alongside sound recordings and contemporary interviews to create a rich political and social narrative. The Spirit of ‘45 hopes to illuminate and celebrate a period of unprecedented community spirit in the UK, the impact of which endured for many years and which may yet be rediscovered today.
On Sunday 17th March cinemas nationwide will take part in a screening event seeing a Q&A panel with Ken Loach and others simulcast across the land - stay tuned for more updates on this. The film will get its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival on 11th February.
