The London Labour Film Festival is a celebration of social commitment through cinema. This September the LLFF will host a series of film screenings, talks and special events offering varied, challenging and inspiring cinematic takes on the lives, hopes and struggle of workers. Spanning three days at the heart of the UK capital, and taking audiences on journeys from the very real effects of the financial crisis on the working classes to visions of future labour on both earth and the moon, the LLFF will welcome guests including Ken Loach and Mike Leigh for what will be a major contribution to a growing global movement committed to cinema’s treatment of labour.
With that in mind, Gavin may have some things to say about the treatment of workers by Lunar Industries, in fact he just tweeted:
Anybody coming along to @LabourFilmFest to watch Moon on Saturday? I’ll tell you all about the Lunar Industries ethics on space-clones 😉
Fantastic for a little British Sci-Fi, with limited release, and limited promotion. Despite this, MOON has continued to perform well in theatres around the world, currently on general release in Germany (1 year after original UK release) and approaching $10 Million gross worldwide (src Box Office Mojo)
A lot of MOON’s success has been down to incredibly good word of mouth, and support from movie sites, and the movie blogging community. Thanks to everyone who went out and bought a ticket 🙂
