Open City Documentary Festival


Solidarity is a rigorous, impassioned investigation into the long-lasting impact of blacklisting in the UK construction industry; a now illegal process through which thousands of workers were denied employment for even tenuous involvement in workplace disputes and trade union activism. Through a composite structure of worker interviews, archival footage from the parliamentary inquest, and a law school’s contemporary investigations, Parker carefully examines the situation from a multiplicity of angles as she seeks to understand, rather than explain, the agendas underlying the Blacklist and its far reaching, continuing consequences. A spare yet immensely powerful enquiry into the systemic and ideological dismantling of workers’ rights in the UK.
