A remarkably vivid portrait of the immensely popular – if often controversial - politician and longest serving Labour MP of all time, largely based on interviews with the man himself shortly before his death. Benn looks back over his eventful personal and political life, as he tirelessly travelled the country with his message of radical socialism.

Hardly impartial, but like it’s subject matter, this film will inspire political engagement, whatever side of the debate you fall on.
