Belonging: The Truth Behind the Headlines is an investigative feature documentary film about where power lies in the UK. Re-looking at events around 3 industrial disputes, 3 governments and over 3 decades we show the impact of government and corporate power on democracy and human rights in the UK. In this film there are many reveals - not least a secret government plan to destroy community and collectivism. The documents we have found prove what has long been suspected by many but not proven - until now.
Through heart rendering personal stories from those at the centre of these industrial disputes we show the impact of the actions of those in power on individuals and communities - but also question what lies ahead. Power: "who has it, and what do they do with it” is as relevant today as it ever was.
