Left Bank Cinema: We Are Many
When: Thursday April 27th at 19:00
Where: Left Bank Leeds, Cardigan Rd, Leeds LS6 1LJ
What: We Are Many is the story of the biggest protest in history, and how it changed the world. On February 15th, 2003, millions of people marched through the streets of 800 cities around the world to try to avert the war against Iraq. Many were protesting for the first time ever.
This bold documentary charts the birth and growth of the new people power movement. “The scales fell from people’s eyes,” says director Amir Amirani. “Up until then, they still had a faith in politics: that there would come a point at which the politicians would have to listen. The realisation that this was not the case was a huge moment.”
The film features testimony from a unique cast of direct participants, including organizers, activists, high-profile figures, and of course the public.
Presented in partnership with disrUPt, a project run by academics at Leeds Beckett University.
