(Robert Rae, 2012, Scotland)
Inspired by true stories from Fife, The Happy Lands follows the journey of a law-abiding community who become law-breakers in a heroic battle against the state. A powerful mix of documentary and drama, featuring a cast of non-actors from communities where the events took place, Theatre Workshop Scotland’s celebrated film documents the 1926 General Strike, in which miners’ unions and the communities around them led the nation against savage austerity cuts. Preceded by a live performance of Scots mining songs from Fiona Forbes.
