Within the metropolis of London that we know, there is a near-impenetrable Secret City. It is a Corporation older than Parliament itself, wielding extraordinary power over British economic policy and global finance, but to most of us, its inner workings are a mystery.
Secret City is the film that investigates the cloaked institution, uncovering the City of London, the Corporation that runs it and its role in the financial crisis.
Michael Chanan and Lee Salter's revelatory documentary exposes the Corporation's anti-democratic constitution and the ancient laws which allow it to function like a state within a state, protecting and promoting the interests of financial capital up to and including the crisis today.
Join us for this eye-opening screening and a post-screening discussion with venerable filmmaker Michael Chanan and Labour MP John McDonnell, Chair of the Socialist Campaign Group and a contributor to the film.
Followed by a Q&A with the film's director Michael Chanan, and John McDonnell MP.
