BLACKLIST is a film examining the construction industry blacklist which operated in secret to systematically deny work to thousands of workers involved in trade union activity.
Unable to find work over many years and without understanding why, the blacklist had detrimental effects on their lives, creating paranoia, isolation and poverty.
The film is being made by visual arts organisation City Projects and filmmaker Lucy Parker. We are currently raising money to produce the film and to allow it to reach a wide audience.
