"Winstanley" (1975) - Radical Film Series

Uploaded with postimage.org

With introduction by Adam Buick

"1649. With poverty and unrest sweeping England, a group of impoverished men and women, known as the Diggers, form a settlement on St.George's Hill, Surrey. Inspired by the visionary leadership of Gerrard Winstanley, the commune's tireless, yet peaceful attempts to assert their right to cultivate and share the wealth of the common land, are met with crushing hostility from local landowners and government troops."
