THE SPIRIT OF '45

THE SPIRIT OF '45

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
1945 was a pivotal year in British history. The unity that carried Britain through the war allied to the bitter memories of the inter-war years led to a vision of a better society. The spirit of the age was to be our brother's and our sister's keeper. Director Ken Loach has used film from Britain's regional and national archives, alongside sound recordings and contemporary interviews to create a rich political and social narrative. 'The Spirit of '45' illuminates and celebrates a period of unprecedented community spirit in the UK, the impact of which endured for many years and which may yet be rediscovered today. ★★★★ "Ken Loach's nostalgic homage to the birth of the welfare state and Beveridge spirit is salutary for our age of austerity" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★ "Film of the Week" - Sight and Sound Magazine
