‘The Empire’s Rebels. Banished to the end of the earth. Out of sight … but not out of mind.’
UK premiere of an exciting new dramatised documentary about the rebels, radicals and reformers exiled as convicts to Australia. Featuring an original folk-punk soundtrack performed by Billy Bragg, Mick Thomas and Lisa O’Neill. Based on the book by Tony Moore, Death or Liberty tells the story of political prisoners convicted in Ireland, England, Wales and Canada and transported to the fatal shore in chains. Their sacrifice paved the way to democracy at home and the triumph of egalitarianism in Australia.
Screening followed by panel discussion with director Keith Farrell (Tile Films), author Dr Tony Moore (Monash University) and academic Dr Janette Martin (University of Huddersfield).
Part of Parliament Week 2015 and the Salford International Media Festival.
Suitable for adults and children 10 years and over with parental guidance.
