This event will be followed by a talk from a film careers panel.

This biographical film explores the work of social documentary photographer Tish Murtha who dedicated her life to championing working-class communities like the one she grew up in. Born in the northern coastal town of South Shields, she was passionate about using her talents as a photographer to highlight the impact of Margaret Thatcher's de-industrialisation policies upon local communities in the 1980s. The documentary follows Tish's daughter, who helps tell her mother's story by interviewing many of Tish's contemporaries, along with narration by Maxine Peake who recounts events using Tish's own words from diary entries and elsewhere. Punctuated by her extraordinary photographs, this heartfelt documentary gives Tish Murtha the well overdue recognition she deserves.
