To run alongside the release of the acclaimed UK drama Suffragette, this fascinating programme of British archive films documents the representation of the suffragette from the 1890s until the granting of partial voting rights in 1918. A visually dazzling mix of newsreels, documentaries and satirical shorts, accompanied by a splendid new score by Lillian Henley, this compelling collection demonstrates the eagerness with which the suffragettes embraced film and its power, and is a fitting tribute to their struggle. Make More Noise! Suffragettes In Silent Film is part of our Discover campaign with Times+ and Picturehouse Cinemas. #Discover
