Films for Food host monthly film screenings at Hub67. Rather than buy tickets, guests should bring a bag of non-perishable food to donate to our local food bank, First Love Foundation. Watch films, do good. What better way to spend a Tuesday.
Films For Food returns with the screening of Austerity Fight directed by Hazuan Hashim & Phil Maxwell. Fresh from its premiere at the East End Film Festival where it got a standing ovation.
The austerity policies of the Tories have targeted young and old. The NHS is chronically under funded and is being privatised. Students are leaving college with huge debts. Children, pensioners and the disabled are living in poverty and millions live precarious lives on ‘zero hour contracts’. Austerity Fight challenges the notion that we have to live in a world where public services are cut, worker’s rights removed and poverty is a daily reality for millions. Austerity Fight champions equality, practical alternatives to Austerity and a vision of a world based on co-operation rather than the greed of a global super elite.
Directors Hazuan Hashim & Phil Maxwell will take part in post screening Q&A over Skype.
