An Anarchist's Story: Doco screening in Otautahi/Christchurch

An invitation to . . .

Ethel MacDonald: An Anarchist’s Story
A BBC Documentary on Ethel MacDonald and the Spanish Revolution

Film Screening

Thursday 28 May, 6.30pm
At the WEA (59 Gloucester Street)

Join us to follow on film the compelling true story of Ethel Macdonald — a remarkable individual, working-class woman and Scottish anarchist. In 1936 Ethel left for the frontlines of the Spanish Civil war to join the revolutionary struggle in Barcelona. Through written accounts and radio broadcasts on the impact of fascist forces on the Republic, Ethel became the voice of the anarchist movement in both Spain and England.

With a combination of narration, historical video, re-enactments and Ethel’s own personal accounts, BBC Scotland has successfully put together an exhilarating and inspiring documentary on Ethel's life and the Spanish Revolution. We encourage you to come and see the film, and join us for discussion afterwards.

Drinks and nibbles provided but BYO food welcome!

Entry by koha/donation.

In solidarity,
Dan, Al, Jess and Jared
