Event Information

The Dirty War On The NHS is the new documentary from renowned BAFTA and Emmy-winning film-maker and journalist John Pilger. ‘This film is a tribute to a unique institution,’ says Pilger at the start of Dirty War, which is about threatened democracy. Above all, it is a warning. Pilger investigates the dismantling ‘by stealth’ of the National Health Service, ‘a last bastion of true public service’.

MAC’s reopening cinema programme has been generously supported by BFI FAN Covid-19 Resilience fund from the National Lottery, through the BFI Film Audience Fund.
