1945 was a pivotal year in British history. The unity that carried Britain through the war allied to the bitter memories of the inter-war years led to a vision of a better society. The spirit of the age was to be our brotherโ€™s and our sisterโ€™s keeper. Director Ken Loach has used film from Britainโ€™s regional and national archives, alongside sound recordings and contemporary interviews to create a rich political and social narrative. The Spirit of โ€˜45 hopes to illuminate and celebrate a period of unprecedented community spirit in the UK, the impact of which endured for many years and which may yet be rediscovered today.
