The Not Dead tells the stories of three soldiers from three different wars, suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – Rob who served in Iraq, Cliff who fought in the British army in Malaya in 1951 and Eddie who served with UN peacekeeping forces in Bosnia.
A quieter and more intense film than others in this retrospective, The Not Dead carries a political message addressing PTSD across three generations of soldiers. The use of poetry is much subtler and more profound in this, Brian Hill’s last collaboration with Simon Armitage.
Tuesday 18th August, 19.30 - with an introduction by Brian Hill.
Please Note: There will not be any adverts before the film, so please arrive promptly for the introduction.
