Still the Enemy Within, winner of this year’s International Sheffield Documentary Festival Audience Award, is a unique human insight into one of Britain’s most dramatic struggles, the 1984-85 Miners’ Strike. No experts. No politicians. Thirty years on, this is the raw emotional story of the extraordinary people who drove Britain’s longest strike.
Using interviews and a wealth of rare and never before seen archive, it draws together personal experiences to take the audience on an emotionally powerful journey through the dramatic events of that year. Including, a powerful interview with the real-life star of this year’s hit Pride, Mike Jackson.
Still The Enemy Within is ultimately a universal tale of ordinary people standing up for what they believe in. It challenges us to look again at our past so that in the words of one miner, “we can still seek to do something about the future”.
