Deep State and Year of the Beaver

A Double-Bill Event

year-of-the-beaver-300x208‘Year of the Beaver’ (1976-78) is an invaluable document of a historic strike (between 1976-78) by predominantly migrant and female workers. The film goes beyond documentary to become a portrait of the historical period undergoing a transition to Thatcherism.

Deep State (2012) moves even further away from documentary but retains this notion of marking a historical period of political struggle, crisis, solidarity, schisms and oppression. Archive footage slices through a science fiction inflected narrative in this challenging and innovative film.

Both films were screened in the space throughout the day to facilitate diverse engagement with the form and content.
