The films being screened all harness the added power that emerges when whole communities or those directly involved in the events are participants in the re-enactment. In the conflicts and atrocities depicted – spanning more than 200 years of history – what also emerges are the economic and class issues behind the violence and how through re-enactment, it is possible to establish a new relationship with the past.
In addition to the main programme, films from the Screen Archive South East collection will be played during the day. They range from the 1910’s to the 1960’s and convey a ‘lost’ Brighton that is preserved as fragments of moving images, time and space.
