The Plan (Film + Q&A) – Sheffield

1st March 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Part film essay, part documentary THE PLAN tells the untold story of how a group of British weapons engineers switched to designing hybrid engines and wind turbines and were nominated for the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. At a time when climate injustice is fanning the flames of inequality THE PLAN looks at how this group of eco-pioneering aerospace engineers took control for the sake of the planet. Their heroism has been forgotten but as constant wars and climate crisis proliferate there’s vital lessons to be learnt from their story

This special screening will be followed by a panel discussion including Director Steve Sprung, and former Lucas Aerospace designer Brian Salisbury.

The schedule will run as follows –
THE PLAN Part 1: 1pm – 3pm
Interval – 3pm – 3.30pm
THE PLAN Part 2: 3.30pm – 5.00pm
Panel Discussion – 5.00pm – 5.30pm    

“This film captures a unique moment in our history – highly skilled workers showing how to turn swords into ploughshares. If we want to transform society, this is a good place to start.” Ken Loach

“An urgent and gripping piece of work, reflecting on the dark consequences of capitalism on society and proposing an encouraging alternative for a troubling present” London Film Festival
