The Battle of Orgreave (2001)

Written by

A documentary by Mike Figgis about Jeremy Deller's reenactment of the Battle of Orgreave, a crucial set-piece confrontation that took place during the Great Miners' Strike of 1984-5."I believe the '84-'85 struggle isn't a closed book,
that even though the mines or the miners have depreciated in number they're still here doing different professions or, whatever, different jobs, and the working class are still here. Like I say, this kind of confrontation will rise again in the near future."
