THE PLAN that came from the bottom up is a thought-provoking and extensive film essay which chronicles the extraordinary story of the Lucas Aerospace engineers, who forty years ago responded to the threat of redundancy with their own plan of action. The film documents how this group of workers developed alternatives to the military products their company made, including  wind turbines and hybrid cars.

With climate injustice fanning the flames of inequality all around the world, the most urgent question we face is how we transform our destructive economic model towards one that is good for people and the planet. This film needs to be watched and shared – for it will inspire, educate and transform what we think is possible.
Asad Rehman, ‘War on Want’

This special screening will be followed by a panel Q&A including a Lucas Aerospace worker and special guests from the climate and Just Transition movements.

Please note, the Midlands Arts Centre cinema has a strict no latecomers policy, please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
