Oxford Indymedia

Secret City - Oxford Film Screening and Q&A

oarcfilms | 10.02.2013 21:20 | Oxford

To celebrate our second year of regular film screenings at East Oxford Community Centre, Oxford Indymedia are proud to present the new independent film about the City of London, the Corporation that runs it, and its role in the economic crisis… Secret City. Film makers Lee Salter and Michael Chanan will be attending this Oxford Premier to introduce the film and for a Q&A afterwards.



The City of London is an anonymaly in UK democracy. With just 7,000 permanent residents and the lowest car ownership in the country, its own police force, its arcane system of self-government with its Lord Mayor, Livery Companies and Alderman, businesses that have the right to vote and it’s direct accountability to the Crown rather than Parliament, the City houses the one of the Globes’s key financial centres and the Inns of Court, the heart of the UK’s legal system. The City is the place where banks, brokers, insurers and other money-makers enjoy their unimpeded ascendancy.

Clement Attlee once called the City ‘another power than that which has its seat at Westminster’, where ‘those who control money can pursue a policy at home and abroad contrary to that which has been decided by the people’.

The Occupy LSX movement, which arose in 2011, once again drew public attention to the unprecedented political and financial status the City enjoys; largely unchanced since William the Conqueror’s time. Secret City will take us on a tour of key City locations by an Occupy activist, Liam Taylor and delve into the history and mystery of the UK’s most powerful centre.

We’re pleased to have the film’s makers, Lee Salter and Michael Chanan, coming to present the film and be involved in a Q&A session afterwards.

The night will be held downstairs in the bar where Catweazel Club is normally held, so there will be refreshments on tap and in bottle for the night.

Because of the larger overheads of the screening, we are recommending a donation of £5 (£3 concessions) for this night only.
