Brief yet rousing - worth a minute of anybody's time!
8 August 2020 | by ianpeggSee all my reviews

A brief yet rousing depiction of the struggle and suffering endured by the common man during the English Civil War. This formative historical event doesn't get the coverage it deserves in either the English education system or popular British culture. Finbow clearly seeks to redress this oversight with his evocative short film.

Exploring the work of the Levellers is all the more apt given the circumstances in which we find ourselves living in 2020. Here's hoping this film gets developed into a longer format to do this topic justice.
