Made In Dagenham (Nigel Cole, 2010) will be screened on Thursday 3rd February 2011 at 7:30pm in the Studio Theatre.
It’s 1968, the year of revolution and students are demonstrating the world over. Meanwhile in Dagenham in Essex as far from the swinging sixties as possible, the Ford Motor Company is about to face its biggest ever threat, and from the unlikeliest of places: the female sewing machinists. The women down tools when they are reclassified as “unskilled”.
With humour, common sense and courage they take on their U.S. paymasters, an increasingly belligerent local community, and finally the government itself, to strike an everlasting blow for equal pay for women. From the makers of Calendar Girls, featuring a stellar British cast including Sally Hawkins, Bob Hoskins and Miranda Richardson.
