Made by an all-women team, Broadside, this moving documentary about the emergence of the feminist anti-nuclear movement starts with the action of ’embracing’ the Greenham Common base in December 1982, when more than 30,000 women came to protest about cruise missiles, and also shows actions in other countries. The issues of secrecy of decisions about weapons is raised, and the trial where the demonstrators claimed that nuclear weapons are illegal under international law is described.
Unfortunately there are three 20 second sequences where the picture is missing.
