There are now three showings in the North East of the film Oh Jeremy Corbyn: The Big Lie. The film was first shown in the UK (London) in February, and now there are an increasing number of screenings countrywide.
The film is made by Platform Films, and this is what the film has to say about itself:
“Produced by award-winning radical film-maker Platform Films, with contributions from Jackie Walker, Ken Loach, Andrew Murray, Graham Bash and Moshe Machover, and narrated by Alexei Sayle, this feature-length documentary film explores a dark and murky story of political deceit and outrageous antisemitic smears. It also uncovers the critical role played by current Labour leader, Keir Starmer and asks if the movement which backed Corbyn could rise again.“

Many people in the region have been looking forward to seeing the film, and this has involved the organisation and planning from individuals and groups. Margaret Brown from Sunderland says:
“I am really excited that ‘The Big Lie’ film is coming to the North East and thanks to all concerned.”
