CARRY GREENHAM HOME d. Beeban Kidron & Amanda Richardson, 1983 at Kiln Theatre (20 JUN 19:00).
To honour the story of our new production of ‘Es and Flo’, alongside a new exhibition of Wendy Carrig’s photography, we present a brilliant film portrait of the turbulence and dynamism of Greenham Common activism, where the lead characters began their romance.
CARRY GREENHAM HOME is the story of the world-changing protests by the people who were there. The Greenham Peace Camp was a shining example of non-violent feminist action, changing laws and lives.
“The women of Greenham taught a generation how to protest” noted Beeban Kidron, who made this, her first film while living on-site with co-director Amanda Richardson.
Shot on video, its depiction of the courage, creativity and humour of the Greenham women contrasted greatly at the time with media portraits, giving greater insight into their motivations, and remains a seminal work of British feminism on film.
