Yotam Feldman | Israel/France/Belgium, 2013 | 58 mins | NR | Tickets £4 waged / £3 low or unwaged
The Lab investigates the appeal of Israeli weapons to the international arms trade. How did such a small country become one of the biggest military exporters in the world? Israeli arms dealers are eager to promote their products and pride themselves on their booming business. Profits have never been better, sales are doubling every year. But the product they sell is unique. Rather than rifles, rockets or bombs, the Israeli companies sell their experience. This film reveals how the Israeli arms industry makes vast profits worldwide thanks to their “experience” in the occupied territories.
PLUS: Not in Our Name
Gabrielle Tierney | Northern Ireland, 2009 | 30 mins | NR
On the 12th August 2006, during the Israeli military campaign against Lebanon, 9 men stormed an arms factory in Derry, Northern Ireland. They caused an estimated £350,00 worth of damage and were arrested. They denied nothing, yet the jury acquitted them of all charges.
Featuring interviews with Tony Benn and writer and comedian Mark Steel, this is a moving and uplifting account of a struggle across continents.

Love and Revolution
Yannis Youlountas | France, 2018 | 85 mins | English subtitles | Contains very strong language
The media no longer talk about Greece, suggesting that the austerity ‘cure’ has been successful. This film proves the opposite. A musical journey from the north to the south of Greece, Love and Revolution is about small acts of solidarity, co-operation, direct action and resistance to austerity against a background of growing fascism and state brutality. It shows what people can do to exist, resist and dream when they’ve been fleeced by their own ruling class, bullied and stitched up by the EU, IMF and the international banking system, and sold down the river by their so-called ‘left’ government. In turns funny, sad, angry and heart-breaking, it is above all hugely inspiring.
And you don’t stop: Hip hop as resistance
SubMedia | USA, 2018 | 30 mins | Contains very strong language
It’s often said that hip hop is more than just a type of music, it’s a way of life. A code, a set of practices, an aesthetic and a way of handling yourself. And despite the efforts of industry executives to commodify it and strip it of its subversive potential, hip hop remains a lifestyle firmly rooted in the daily struggles faced by oppressed peoples around the world. It is a weapon, masquerading as culture. SubMedia explores hip hop as a potent site of revolutionary politics, drawing on the first hand knowledge and experiences of a number of grassroots emcees: Ant Loc, Mic Crenshaw, La Marea, Sima Lee, Lee Reed and Mare. Contains strong language.
