Manchester Film Co-op and Manchester Open Rights Group would like to invite you to a special screening of The Real Social Network – a film about the new generation of protest.
Protest has changed. Between the first UK student protests in November 2010 and the global uprising in the spring of 2011, a new radicalism, fuelled by modern technology, has hit the streets.
Over 6 months of government cuts, a collective of filmmakers has had exclusive access to the backroom meetings of a group of London students as they hacked software, occupied universities and shut down banks. In the process, they’ve helped build the movement currently sending ripples across the globe.
The Real Social Network captures the passion, the anger and the technology that has forever changed the game between those in power and us.
Tuesday 23rd of October, 19:4
5pm at On The Eighth Day Cafe.
£3 waged, £2 unwaged/student.
