Glasgow Film Theatre: Manifesto and Q & A


Thursday 16 June, 2022 – 8.20 p.m.

Manifesto is a feature-length documentary about Walton Constituency Labour Party (CLP), and their campaigning in Liverpool Walton, known as the safest Labour seat in Britain.

Filmed over the course of three years by filmmakers from the town, Manifesto captures the peaks and troughs of former leader Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party from the coalface, and gives a vital voice to a working class community, in both politics and film. Education, the NHS, Brexit, economics, the environment, workers’ rights and more are on the agenda as the CLP passionately campaigns for change through Labour’s ‘For The Many’ manifesto.

This is a hopeful film about community activists who believe in collective action, influencing society from the bottom up. Shadowing the CLP members to meetings and protests, the hand-held approach to the film paints an unwavering picture of the hard work of the activists as they campaign on streets and picket lines.

Manifesto captures the under-represented facet of party politics at a vital time in British political history. The documentary gives a first-hand account of grassroots community activism, depicting the work and effort that goes into party politics away from Westminster.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Labour MSP Paul Sweeney and former Labour MSP Neil Findlay.
