Showing at the Torch Theatre Cinema, on Wednesday, July 3, Strike: An Uncivil War (15) is Daniel Gordon’s feature documentary that tells the story of the most violent confrontation between miners and police during the 1984/85 miners’ strike.

The year-long strike was the most divisive and violent industrial dispute that Britain has ever witnessed. Using powerful personal testimony, previously hidden government documents and a treasure trove of never-before-seen archive material, the film follows the events at Orgreave, which took place on June 18, 1984.

Witness first hand the recollections of the people on the front lines of this incredible battle, which split communities and the nation in two, and which has ripples that still resonate to this day.

“This is a tough, valuable, forthright film about one of the nastiest, ugliest moments in postwar British history… It is still staggering that a government planned wholesale mine closures with… no interest in what would happen to the communities affected,” concluded The Guardian, who gave the documentary four stars.

The film starts at 5.15pm. Tickets from 01646 695267 or
