Invisible Britain: Portraits of Hope and Resilience reveals untold stories from people who have been left out of the media narrative and left behind by government policy. Featuring the work of accomplished documentary photographers, the book shows how an unprecedented world of austerity, de-industrialisation and social upheaval is affecting us all.
Sleaford Mods - Invisible Britain shows the most relevant and uncompromising British band in years sticking two fingers up to the zeitgeist and articulating the rage and desperation of those without a voice in austerity Britain.
Part band doc, part look at the state of the nation, the film features individuals and communities attempting to find hope among the ruins, against a blistering soundtrack by Sleaford Mods.
Following the screening there will be a panel Q&A to discuss the book with Paul Sng, Cian Oba-Smith, Corinne Jones, Jenny Lewis, Inès Elsa Dalal and host Michael Sheen.
Copies of ‘Invisible Britain’ will be available to purchase at the event from Bookmarks Books. Signed copies will be available.
