An essay on the future of the British Left through the different perspectives of A and Z. In their wide-ranging search for alternatives the question is posed – is it still possible, even desirable, to draw a political map? A and Z present specific case studies to illustrate their differing views on the meaning of history including; an attempt by Thurcroft miners to buy and run a colliery under their own management, a Buddhist mandala, and the words of The Third Man’s Harry Lime.

On his death in 1999, Marc Karlin was described as Britain’s most significant, unknown filmmaker. For three decades, he was a leading figure within Britain’s independent film community, actively contributing to opening up television through Channel 4. He was a founding member of the Berwick Street Film Collective; a director of Lusia Films, a key influence in the Independent Filmmakers Association, and a creative force behind the group that published the independent film magazine, Vertigo (1993-2010).
