In 2001, the British artist Jeremy Deller worked with Artangel to re-enact the events that shook Orgreave seventeen years previously. Almost 1000 people took part in the reconstruction of these historical events, including former miners and police, who were witnesses of and participants in the bloody clashes in 1984. Based on the re-enactment a documentary film was made by Mike Figgis, made in collaboration with Jeremy DellerFilm 'The Battle of Orgreave: An Injury to One is an Injury to all' juxtaposes dramatic photographic stills of the strike in 1984 with documentation of the staged events in 2001. The film also includes excerpts of interviews with witnesses from the 'real' battle, including miners, members of the Women's Support Group and police officers. Such a careful consideration of the conflict, that is based on the unjust actions of the political system towards workers, shows the complexity and ambiguity of the situation related to the analysis and broadcasting of political events in the context of history.      

The project will be accompanied by an intensive public programe scheduled for the fall 2014. The program will consisting of a talk with Deremy Deller, a discussions that will bring together journalists, historians, documentary makers, artists, curators and politicians, who contribute to the construction and interpretation of histories. A workshop with your artists and filmmakers on historical reconstruction and work with archival materials will be also organized. Such a format will create a space for critical dialogue, with Jeremy Deller's project acting as a starting point for discussions about the current political situation in Russia, as well as broader questions about social responsibility, and the documentation and translation of political events into national and international histories.

The film is in English with Russian subtitles, Video, 62 min
