Free next Tuesday evening? Following on from their very successful Women in Power and Politics season, the Tricycle threatre will present a special screening of MADE IN DAGENHAM (Tues 12th October 8.15pm).
You may have noticed that very few films have a female dominated cast, although it’s only too normal to see films with a pretty much all male ensemble, save for the token female love interest ofcourse. This is a great chance to see some talented British actresses (and some male actors) in a fantastic new film. MADE IN DAGENHAM tells the true story of one group of women’s ground-breaking fight for equal pay.
It’s 1968 and Ford factory sewing machinists in Dagenham, Essex, down tools when they are reclassified as ‘unskilled’. The film stars an all British cast of Miranda Richardson, Geraldine James, Rosamund Pike and Bob Hoskins.
You can join in a post-screening Q&A with Director Nigel Cole (Calendar Girls), alongside Producers Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley (The Crying Game, Interview With the Vampire, Michael Collins). The Q&A will be hosted by Kate Kinninmont (Chief Executive – Women in Film and Television).
