The construction industry blacklist 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.

BLACKLIST is being made by visual arts organisation City Projects and filmmaker Lucy Parker, who has been working alongside members of the Blacklist Support Group for over four years. The project has generated several short films, exhibitions and events. The 90 minute film is due for completion in March 2019.
