Film: Where to Invade Next

February

Friday 17th February 2017
7.30pm
£3 suggested donation

Global Justice Bradford present Micheal Moore's latest film, Where to Invade Next.
Following a succession of disastrous military campaigns, Michael Moore suggests a different approach, playfully visiting various nations in Europe and Africa as a one-man "invader" to take their best ideas back to America.
Whether it is Italy with its generous holidays, France with its gourmet school lunches, Germany with its progressive industrial policy, Norway and unique prison system, Tunisia and its strongly progressive women's policy, or Iceland and its strong female presence across public life, Michael Moore discovers there is much that American could take from others without firing a shot.

Dig!

Dig! (15)

March
10
Friday 10th March 2017
7.30pm
£4.00 adults, £3 unwaged

Whether or not you’ve heard of the bands The Brian Jonestown Massacre or the The Dandy Warhols really misses the point of this remarkable film, and for a music documentary, there isn’t even all that much music.

Filmed over seven years, Dig! is an essay on the tortuous relationship between people who perceive themselves as artistic geniuses and pretty much everyone else.

You are asked to bring a donation (non-perishable basic food such as tins or dried food) for the Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank when you come and see a film.
