UK Gold, an award winning film looking into Great Britain’s role in global tax avoidance, is to be screened in Peterborough through Greeniversity next week as part of limited nationwide screenings.
The film follows the journey of Hackney vicar Father William Taylor who challenges the system in an attempt to understand the full impact of UK financial chicanery.
Speaking of the screening Ian Tennant, Greeniversity’s development co-ordinator, said “We’re thrilled to be screening such an important and topical film. UK Gold won Best Documentary at this year’s East End Film Festival, and has had positive reviews from The Guardian and Daily Mirror, so for us to be able to screen it through Greeniversity, and have the director Mark Donne attend for a Q+A afterwards, is a real coup.”
With the views and voices of British politicians, hedge fund masters of the universe, Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow, Private Eye’s Richard Brooks and Vanity Fair investigative journalist Nicolas Shaxson, UK Gold exposes the fundamental role the City of London plays in the secretive network of tax havens and tax avoidance.
The film also features household names in the form of Dominic West (The Wire) who narrates the film, as well as an original sound-score by Thom Yorke (Radiohead), Guy Garvey (Elbow) and Robert Del Naja (Massive Attack).
Greeniversity, Peterborough Environment City Trust’s national skill-share group, will be screening the film for free at 6:30pm on Wednesday 11th December, at the Peterborough Central Library.
Those wanting to sign up to attend the screening can do so via the Greeniversity website, www.greeniversity.org.uk.
