Alongside this film screening, PRSC welcomes Kat from the Bristol Cable to share the realities of cooperativism in Bristol today and Joel Lazarus from the Bristol Learning Coop about the possibilities of creating a cooperative college or university. Can We Do It Ourselves focuses on economic philosophy with an emphasis on the concept of economic democracy. The film helps viewers understand the difference between a market economy in which consumer demand drives a company's supply of goods and services, and a capitalist economy in which private owners control production and hold a right to the profits. There is strong support for the potential promise of a democratic economic model in which workers have more of a say in business operations than either market or capitalist models. Input from European and American economic experts as well as general consumers helps to unveil the complexities of these economic models by presenting the potential benefits and pitfalls of each. Many of the interview subjects argue in favor of greater democracy in the workforce, highlighting a need to establish a system that emphasizes the importance of workers' welfare.

"Concrete Soldiers Uk" tells the story of the destruction of council estates, the social cleansing of those who live there - and the inspiring resistance of tenants, leaseholders and other committed to the ongoing existence and availability of social housing. The screening will be accompanied by an exhibition on the London housing crisis from photographer Lisa Furness. The film, by Nikita Woolfe, focuses in particular on the Aylesbury Estate in Southwark, where the destruction is already underway, but is being challenged, and Central Hill and Cressingham Gardens in Lambeth, both threatened with destruction. In all three cases, residents are fighting back, and giving hope to others whose homes are threatened, both in London and across the UK. "Three years ago I was looking at all the new developments in London and was surprised to see how much of the construction happened on old council estate land. I started wondering why the councils wanted to sell off their valuable assets and whether there were alternatives.... That's how Concrete Soldiers UK began... - Three years later and Concrete Soldiers UK is not only answering my questions but it has also become a film about the fighting spirit that I encountered on the way. I was so impressed by people and their tireless campaigning in situations which often ended with a negative outcome. It's easy to see why people would become discouraged and just give up. But some haven't and some even managed to succeed in their campaigns. That's what Concrete Soldiers UK is all about." Nikita Woolfe
