@ The Cottage Social Centre, Friday 25th 7pm

The 1936 Spanish uprising is in full flow whilst in Liverpool 
unemployed and disillusioned David decides to leave his fiancee and 
travel to Spain as a volunteer where he meets the beautiful 

This outstanding film offers a fascinating insight into the Spanish 
Civil war through the eyes of a young British volunteer, memorably 
portrayed by Ian Hart. Following his death in present-day Britain, 
his grand-daughter sorts through an old suitcase containing the 
mementos of his time in war-torn Spain, providing the framework for 
the story. Brilliantly directed by Ken Loach, the film is a 
poignant evocation of that same mix of beauty and ugliness, love 
and tragedy that other writers on Spain have portrayed, and which 
all those who have, in different ways, been captivated by that 
country will instantly recognise. The use of loosely-scripted 
dialogue to add spontaneity and immediacy is particularly 
effective. Altogether an unforgettable experience.
