Outsiders: The Peace Convoy
(Film/Video, Martin Parry, January 2006)
PAL
This is the story of the struggles for Stonehenge Free Festival during 1985 and 1986. In an early example of 'embedded journalism' before the term was in vogue, the filmmaker travels with and uncovers the values and motivations of a group of travellers which originated in the 'Peace camps' of the 1980's, including Molesworth and Greenham Common. (from 8.00)

This is the story of the struggles for Stonehenge Free Festival during 1985 and 1986. It also raises broader questions concerning society's commitment to principles of freedom and diversity, and our treatment of dissident and minority groups.
In an early example of 'embedded journalism' before the term was in vogue, the filmmaker travels with and uncovers the values and motivations of a group of travellers which originated in the 'Peace camps' of the 1980's, including Molesworth and Greenham Common.
The film includes sequences shot from inside convoy 'runs', police roadblocks, and the infamous 'Battle of the Beanfield', as well as statements from the police and National Trust, residents in the Stonehenge area and key figures in the free festival movement.
This is a lively film with a strong visual style, leavened by relevant music from 'Talking Heads' and 'The Pagan Fringe.'
