Ten Minute Tubthump “Reasons not to be a woman in 2014” From the far right to men’s rights, from the nuclear family to a sisterhood gone very wrong. What is the current state of struggle for women and where do we go from here? A ten minute provocative talk followed by informal discussion, drinks and general plotting and planning on how we can actually change this world.

Plan Cinema: Probing the Future

Plan C kicks off a series of three critical science-fiction films with Sleep Dealer. This Mexican film from director Alex Rivera, originally released in 2008, uses a near-future setting to explore the privatization of natural resources, migrant labour, and increasingly mediated military and communicational technologies interwoven through a subtle story of connection across borders.

Next in the series of three critical science-fiction films with The Man in the White Suit. A 19521 classic staring Alex Guinness. The discovery of an indestructible white material begins a hilarious romp that incidentally dissects capitalism’s tendency to stunt technological progress.

 Friday 12th September – Sunday 14th September. YHA Edale, The Peak District

Fast Forward Weekend 2014: Demanding the Future

Plan C is hosting FFW2014, a weekend of discussions, plenaries, workshops, walking, climbing and socialising. We hope FFW2014 will contribute to building new relationships, new ideas, new energies and new strategies that help equip us to enact the future. Open to all. For details see: http://www.weareplanc.org/festival

Last in the series of three critical science-fiction films with Omicron

The body of an apparently dead Italian worker is found inside a pipe. The worker, however, is not dead. His body has been taken over by Omicron, an alien who is seeking to learn the customs and functions of modern humans as a prelude to an alien invasion. As Omicron learns how to operate the body he returns to the workers factory job and is soon enmeshed in the class struggle of the time. This plot device allows us an outsider’s view of the situation resulting in a light-hearted parody of the capitalist system.
