Education charity WORLDwrite are giving away five free tickets to an exclusive gala screening of their new film 1917: Why the Russian Revolution Matters.
Tickets can be won by any student or unemployed person living in Hackney and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
Filmed to mark the centenary of the October Revolution, the documentary includes interviews, analysis and archive footage detailing what the organisers call “humanity’s greatest experiment in social change.”
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Ceri Dingle, alongside a few special guests.
Dingle describes the film as a “myth-buster,” and says that it challenges the traditional narrative of this period in Russian history.
The documentary is one of several films made by WORLDwrite who provide free training to volunteer filmmakers in an attempt to promote “citizen reporting.”
Earlier this year the Arcola Theatre also marked the 100 year anniversary of the Russian Revolution, with a series of five plays that explored this astonishing moment in history a century on.
WORLDwrite’s screening will take place Sunday 26 November at the Castle Cinema in Hackney (64 – 66 Brooksby’s Walk, E9 6DA).
