Peterloo

Film Screening: Peterloo

Maker Mike Leigh (Mr Turner) directs an epic portrayal of a defining moment in British democracy, the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre at St Peter’s Field in Manchester. As a crowd of over 60,000 gathered to demand political reform and protest against rising levels of poverty, the government forces killed and wounded hundreds of peaceful activists. With this richly detailed and passionate film, Mike Leigh fights a brilliant rearguard action on history’s political battlefield.
