A portrait of the committed socialist, trade unionist and Labour politician Dennis Skinner.
Raised alongside nine siblings within a mining village, Dennis has fought for the rights of the working class for over 50 years. Uncompromising in his views and with a set of incorruptible principles, Dennis is respected and feared on both sides of the House of Commons.
Nature of The Beast looks at what lies behind his passion and drive, and tracks his rise from a local councillor to today where he is one of Britain's most recognisable politicians - known as ‘The Beast of Bolsover’.
DocDays screening: Dennis Skinner MP, the film's director Daniel Draper and producer/editor Christie Allanson join us for a Q&A following a presentation of the film.
Wednesday 13 December 6.30pm, Curzon Soho.
Tickets £15.00 / £12.50 for Curzon Members.
With thanks to Shut Out the Light Films.
