Caption Subtitled Screening: 11am Mon 21 Sept

Welcome back to Storyhouse. We put customer safety at the top of everything we do, however at this time that means a little more than making sure you don’t get struck inadvertently by an actor! It now also means keeping 2 metres apart and wearing a face covering on the move inside the building. We will be asking all our customer to both enjoy themselves and to stick to some easy to follow guidelines. Find out how we’re keeping you safe here

Directed by: Rubika Shah

The untold story of how a motley crew of punks stood up against racism.

Britain, late-1970s. Punk is exploding. The country is deeply divided over immigration. The National Front, a far-right political party, is gaining strength. Outraged by a racist speech from Eric Clapton, music photographer Red Saunders writes a letter to the music press, calling for rock to be a force against racism. NME, Melody Maker, and Sounds all publish the letter. Flooded with responses, Red discovers many share his views. He teams up with like-minded individuals to create Rock Against Racism (RAR). The movement spreads virally across the UK and many musicians sign up including The Clash, Steel Pulse, and Tom Robinson. Rubika Shah’s excellent documentary captures the movement and the spirit of the age, as the RAR team organise the now legendary concert in London’s Victoria park attended by literally thousands of young people from across the country.
