"The Spirit of '45"

The Spirit of '45, is a documentary by British director Ken Loach, which examines the victory of the Labour Party in the UK following the end of WWII and the subsequent setting up of the National Health Service (NHS), public housing initiatives, nationalization of key levers of transport and natural resources, and the rapid transportation of the status quo of British politics. In a country like ours, where we still lack quality, universal health care for all, the interviews from participants in the events of those tumultuous years in Britain echo lessons down to us across the years and the ocean. Introducing the film is Josh Lucker, one of the founders of the Campaign for a Mass Party Of Labor (CMPL).
