The Spirit of ’45 Review

The Spirit of ’45, Loach’s most comprehensive documentary of the British working class struggle to date, is a fierce and impassioned celebration of workers’ power and the possibility of collective organisation to ensure services are delivered for people and not profit. Using interviews and archive footage – public information films, news bulletins, footage of election campaign speeches etc – Loach weaves together a narrative that explains how Britain utterly transformed itself after the Second World War.
