FSP Film Club, September: Forsyth’s Local Hero

Streaming, but collectively. Watch a movie with your Freelance Solidarity Project comrades.

This month’s political-cinema screening will be Local Hero, Bill Forsyth’s 1983 film, where an oil-company executive gets dispatched to buy up a remote Scottish village on behalf of his weird boss (Burt Lancaster!) but then discovers a life beyond capitalist acquisition.
