GROUNDSWELL - THE GRASSROOTS BATTLE FOR THE NHS. AND DEMOCRACY is a moving, inspiring David and Goliath documentary about ordinary Britons challenging the free marketeers’ annexation of the NHS and 40-year dominance of our society. A unique, wide-ranging, revelatory personal journey by filmmaker John Furse on the pulse of our times.

Filmed mostly by the director between 2015-18, using cheap domestic cameras, and edited at home with Gus Coral, this independently-made documentary features powerful testimony from Professor Stephen Hawking and NHS staff, with a moving climax by dying actor Dudley Sutton.

“An urgent, compelling film that deserves to be seen widely.” (The Independent, July 6th 2018)

“A highly individual, remarkably sophisticated piece of filmmaking. It is rare to see a film that explores complex issues and attitudes with such clarity.” (Archie Tait, ex-Director ICA Cinema)
