Luke Fowler’s film focuses on Marxist historian E.P. Thompson, employed by the Workers’ Education Association from 1946 to teach literature and social history to adults in the industrial towns of West Riding. The film explores the issues around progressive educationalists who desired to use teaching to create revolutionaries and pursue the original WEA values of socially purposeful education.
