Event description

Description

Post-work? Framing Labour in Post-Industrial Europe is a mini-season of three film screenings that present cinematic representations of the dramatic transformation of employment in contemporary Europe.

We invite filmmakers, academics, unions and the wider public to a conversation on work and unemployment; a conversation on precariousness, class, casualization, deprivation and solidarity which will take place alongside the film screenings. The first film explores the current situation of post-industrial areas. The second session confronts us with the difficulties of representing and reflecting on the meaning of labour in contemporary times. The final session will be a screening of I Daniel Blake, Ken Loach (2016) as a seminar within the existing History School program.

Sunday 22 April 2018 @ Side Cinema: film screening 3:00-4:30pm, Song For Billy (Amber Films) and Brumaire (Joseph Gordillo) followed by Q&A 4.30-5.30pm with Joseph Gordillo, Graeme Rigby (Amber) and Steve Cannon, Senior Lecturer in Film Studies, University of Sunderland.

* Post-Work is hosted in partnership with the Leeds University "Post-work?" AHRC-funded project led by researchers in Languages, Cultures and Societies (Sarah Waters, Matthew John, Carmina Gustran). The project investigates the role of cinema in reflecting the systemic and international dimensions of contemporary labour conditions, thereby opening up a space for discussion on new forms of mobilisation that can contribute to social change and global justice.

Friday 18 May: Post-work workshop in Leeds: bringing together researchers, film directors and trade unionists. This event will be followed by a screening of I, Daniel Blake (Ken Loach, 2016). for more information visit http://www.leeds.ac.uk/arts/info/125312/post-work_framing_labour_in_post_industrial_europe/3154/events
