Still the Enermy Within – Miners Strike Film World Premiere

Miners’ strike film set for Sheffield world premiere

by 19th May 2014, 7.30 BST

Still The Enemy WithinStill the Enemy Within, the film reflecting on the miners’  strike, is next month to have its world premiere at the Sheffield Doc Fest.

The first-time feature for director Owen Gower tells the story of the strike through the voices of ‘Arthurs Army’ – a group of miners who put themselves on the frontline of every major battle for a year to defend their jobs and their communities.

Thirty years on, the film catches up with Norman, Jim, Howard, Buck, Jip, Joe and Steve to find out what life was really like on the front line. Whether it’s the comic misadventures of having the surname ‘Strike,’ running battles with the police or the death of a best friend, their stories are at once funny, dramatic, sad and ultimately inspiring.

The film will be screened  on 1.45pm on June 7th and again at 8.30pm on June 11th, both at Showroom 4 in Sheffield. There will be a Q&A with the team after both screenings.  Tickets can be purchased here.
