Sands Films Cinema Club: The Charge Of The Light Brigade

Film -1968 -139 mins – Dir. Tony Richardson- United Kingdom

Largely a black comedy, A Doctor Strangelove for the 1850’s. Its simple story reduces the Crimean War’s messy imperial politics into personal revenge. Its depiction of upper class arrogance and lilitary bumbling is certainly worth watching

The Charge of the Light Brigade is a 1968 British DeLuxe Color war film made by Woodfall Film Productions in Panavision and distributed by United Artists, depicting parts of the Crimean War and the eponymous charge. It was directed by Tony Richardson and produced by Neil Hartley. It is also notable for the animated credits and linking passages provided by Richard Williams, drawing on the satirical use of jingoistic images.

This film followed the famous 1936 version The Charge of the Light Brigade, starring Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland.




Stop The War Logo

Sands Films Studios presents great classic anti-war films during April and May with the collaboration of the Stop The War Coalition.

Stop the War was founded in September 2001 in the weeks following 9/11, when George W. Bush announced the “war on terror”. Stop the War has since been dedicated to preventing and ending the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and elsewhere.

Stop the War opposes the British establishment’s disastrous addiction to war and its squandering of public resources on militarism. We have initiated many campaigns around these issues.

We are committed to supporting Palestinian rights, opposing racism and Islamophobia, and to the defence of civil liberties.

Stop the War has organised around 40 national demonstrations, including the largest protests ever held in Britain, most memorably on 15 February 2003, when up to two million gathered on London’s streets to oppose the Iraq war .

In 2013, Stop the War was central in mobilising opposition to UK bombing of Syria, as proposed by David Cameron’s government. This led to the historic decision in parliament when MPs voted against military intervention.

Other events which Stop the War has organised are thousands of public meetings across the country, direct action in the run up to UK wars – including walkouts from schools, colleges and workplaces – two People’s Assemblies, international peace conferences, vigils, lobbies of Parliament and anti-war cultural events.

Individuals can become members of Stop the War, and we welcome affiliations by supporting organisations and trade unions. Members and affiliates must support the aims of Stop the War as set out in our constitution.
