MOTHERS OF THE REVOLUTION, a feature-length documentary that tells the
story of the extraordinary women behind the Greenham Common Peace Camp
heads to the UK this Autumn.
In 1981 a group of 36 women set off on a 120 mile march from Cardiff to
Berkshire to protest against the planned arrival of American nuclear
missiles on UK soil. In doing so they started something extraordinary, in
time galvanizing over 70,000 women into action to protect their children
and future generations.
This is the untold story of those Greenham Common
women. A tale of how a small number of them made connections with their
counterparts in the peace movement behind the Iron Curtain, travelling to
the Soviet Union to advance peace and, eventually, contributing towards the
end of the Cold War. How they amplified and took the achievements of the
Greenham Common movement onto the world stage by being daring, fun,
inventive and brave. What they started that day in 1981, around a kitchen
table while their children played, became a global movement and the start
of a revolution that changed the world.
