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.

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.

Roger Brown is a corporate recruiter. He’s not exactly handsome, and with insecurities about his below average height, he moonlights as an art thief to pay for pay a lavish lifestyle, complete with big house and beautiful wife. When he decides to go for “the big one” and solve his financial problems once and for all, things go terribly wrong and rapidly spiral out of control.

Although not for the squeamish, it’s a fast paced cinematic ride that puts its Hollywood counterparts to shame.
