JUST DO IT
Emily James, UK 2011 [12A], 88 mins

Emily James spent a year within the environmental movement documenting the clandestine activities of the major players. In this feature documentary, she presents an insider’s account of the new global movement, an independent group funded by volunteers; inspiring, anarchic individuals with inventive strategies challenge the multi-nationals, frustrate the police and create confusion. This film shows what one group of committed individuals can achieve.

NOT IN OUR NAME
Gabrielle Tierney, Ireland/UK 2009 [12A], 30 mins

Nine men were totally acquitted of their £350,000 criminal damage to the International Arms manufacturer in Derry in 2006. The decision became a legal benchmark; an act of deliberate civil disobedience recognised as a weapon in the fight for peace. This film documents the victory and their solidarity with the people in the Lebanese town of Qana; knowledge of the production of those weapons and their use in the Israeli massacre became an impetus for the men to act.

Discussion led by Emily James, Gabrielle Tierney and Anne-Marie O’Reilly, Outreach Co-ordinator, Campaign Against Arms Trade

10.30 FOR 11AM SUNDAY 13 NOVEMBER 2011

First UK screening of two documentary films:

DEADLY DUST (TODESSTAUB), Frieder Wagner, Germany 2006, 93 mins
This science-based documentary explores the effects of depleted uranium ammunition used in Iraq, Kosovo and Bosnia, though banned by the Hague and Geneva Conventions. The surge in post-war birth defects indicates that an epidemic of reproductive abnormalities is likely to have been caused by the residue of these munitions.

WITH THE LINCOLN BRIGADE IN SPAIN, Henri Cartier-Bresson/Herbert Kline, US 1938, 18mins
The internationally acclaimed photographer Cartier-Bresson filmed the Brigade. Its members were drawn from all walks of life and it is thought to be the first military unit commanded by a black officer. The volunteers trained alongside Spanish troops and became know for their bravery. In 2010 the Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archive discovered, restored and re-released this cinema treasure.

DISCUSSION LED BY Rae Street, CND Council member and active in the International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons, John Green, former documentary filmmaker, and Helen Graham, Professor of Modern European History at Royal Holloway, University of London.
