Author: Alan Burton
Co-operative film-making began with the magic lantern before the end of the 19th century, and developed through short training, publicity and educational films – and longer feature films like “Men of Rochdale”, produced for the centenary of the Rochdale Pioneers in 1944 – into the 1960s. This book, produced to coincide with the 1994 Co-operative Film Festival, describes the films and their making, and is illustrated with stills. The foreword is by Lord Attenborough. Two videos are available to complement this book.
