I am a This £100 contribution is from Keep Our NHS Public Dorset. The risks to the NHS of further (final) dismantling are very real, so this film needs to be shown widely. The words of Nye Bevan - “The NHS will last as long as there are folk left with the faith to fight for it”. The fight needs to carry on!
I look forward to seeing this. I hope to be able to see it at a cinema near me, either at the Lewes Depot or perhaps at the Southampton Cinema de Lux. (Alas, whilst there is a Picturehouse cinema nearer to me i am boycotting that chain, and the Picturehouse cinema chain's owner Cineworld, because their is an ongoing boycott call in the name of a living wage.) I expect i would also like to buy the DVD if i find it to be good. I would like to suggest making this film without a soundtrack or music. I'm not in a position to say for certain that this is a good idea, but i find that on issues such as these that emotive soundtracks, or soundtracks in general, are regarded as suspicious; as an attempt to undermine the viewers' reason and as demagoguery. (I would agree with this sentiment in principle even if it isn't always the intent.) It seems to me that a consequence of this is that people are put off investing their time or money into any related activism for fear of being duped or simply having their time wasted. (I will be contacting the Under The Knife film team to suggest this. If you agree perhaps, dear reader, you should also contact them. Contact information is on this webpage: https://undertheknifefilm.co.uk/contact/ .)
This film is really important for raising awareness of the concerted efforts underway to dismantle and privatise healthcare in the UK. Anything which stops this happening is worthy of support. We do not want a privatised healthcare system here. Reform? Yes. Privatisation? Never!
