Throughout 2018 clandestine collaborators D.N.W. (Deeds Not Words) celebrated the Vote100 centenary. D.N.W. created a string of guerilla art stunts, which they filmed to celebrate some of the extraordinary stories of the Suffragettes through a 21st century lens. Surreal, subversive and playful, their films explore these tales through experimental costume, music and creativity.
This year they have created a new film called ‘SuffraJitsu’. Come along to the premiere and see how the Suffragettes fought back using martial arts!
The programme throughout the day includes a launch screening of SuffraJitsu + Q&A, the first 3 D.N.W. films, Girl Gang Resistance & Fanzine workshops, Martial Arts demos and more.
This project is supported by the BFI Film Audience Network as part of Changing Times: Women’s Histories.
The SuffraJitsu short film is being created as a result of the British Council’s FamLab 2018.
The event is female focused but men are welcome to the screenings, Q&A and fanzine workshop too.
