Benefit for Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank

This is a benefit for Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank. Please bring the value of a cinema ticket in non-perishable food and/or a cash donation.

1974, Scotland. Bob Fulton, a Rolls-Royce engine inspector, returns to his section, upset and anxious. He's just told his colleagues that a Chilean Air Force jet engine has arrived in the factory for maintenance and he's refusing to let it go through, in protest against the recent military coup of General Pinochet….

"The film explores this modest act of rebellion in an admirably low-key way that emphasises the fundamental decency of the men who took a stand."
The Scotsman

"Modest, eloquent, informed and funny, the four are dream interviewees, able to recall in painstaking detail the events of the time."
The Herald (Scotland)
