046: Stroud's Secret Suffragist: The Film

By At the Flicks

The “At the Flicks” team are very proud and honoured, to bring you a very special podcast which concentrates on a single short film.   Stroud's Secret Suffragist: The Film   This film was one of the highlights of the 2019 Stroud Film Festival. This local film gives a fascinating insight into the life of Margaret Hills. One hundred years ago, Margaret was a leading member of the Suffragist movement. Over the years, however, the achievements of this remarkable woman have faded from public view. Until now!   Thanks to an amazing creative team, Margaret's story is told in this powerful short film. We talk to the researcher who whilst digging through local council archives discovered the story. We then talk to the talented writer, who took these research fragments and brought them to life as a dramatic live street performance in Stroud. We also managed to interview the actor who played Margaret in that live street performance.   Finally, we move onto the team who created the film, based on all this work. We talk to the young film maker/director/editor and her producer, about the long and difficult development process in the production of the film. On this podcast you can follow the journey of that team through the film's creative process. We have been kindly allowed to use original music from the film during the podcast.   We would like to thank the whole creative team for sharing this astounding woman's life with us and our listeners.
