A new documentary film claiming to ‘tell the truth’ about Jeremy Corbyn’s time as leader of the Labour Party leadership is to be screened in Birmingham on Thursday, 9 March.

Produced by award-winning Platform Films, the film “Oh Jeremy Corbyn — The Big Lie”, tells the story of the rise and fall of the former Labour leader. The 80-minute documentary received its world premiere earlier this year in Berlin’s Babylon Cinema. The film will be screened in Norton’s bar in Digbeth.

The film’s producer, Norman Thomas, said: “Jeremy’s leadership of the Labour Party was wildly distorted by the mainstream media at the time and it still remains a taboo subject. The aim of this film is to at last get the truth out there.”

What’s the film about?

Narrated by comedian Alexei Sayle, the film includes interviews with people who were at the heart of events surrounding Corbyn’s leadership, including film-maker Ken Loach, Jeremy Corbyn’s former political adviser Andrew Murray and ex-Labour MP Chris Williamson

The film explores how in 2017 Jeremy Corbyn came close to becoming prime minister and the “conspiracy of forces” which many of his supporters claim, brought him down. In the film, Loach is highly critical of the role current Labour leader Keir Starmer played in events and calls him a “servant of the state”.

Mr Thomas said: “The film tells an absolutely shocking story of treachery and deception. People of all political stripes and none will be amazed by the tale it has to tell.” You can watch the trailer for the film above.
