Daniel Gordon’s feature documentary STRIKE: AN UNCIVIL WAR tells the story of the Battle of Orgreave, the most violent confrontation between Miners and Police during the 1984/85 Miners’ Strike in Great Britain.

The year-long Strike was the most divisive and violent industrial dispute that Britain has ever witnessed, and using powerful personal testimony, previously hidden government documents and a treasure trove of never-before-seen archive material, STRIKE: AN UNCIVIL WAR follows the events at Orgreave, which took place on 18th June 1984. Witness at first hand the stories and recollections of the people on the front lines of this incredible moment in time, which split communities and the nation in two, and which has ripples that still resonate to this very day.

A tough, valuable, forthright film.

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
