Lady In Red
25 mins
A documentary about the life of Margaret Stanton, my grandmother and a lifelong activist who has been involved with many campaigns from the Spanish Civil War to the Vietnam War, and Anti-Apartheid. Margaret speaks about what influenced her to keep on campaigning for over 70 years, and others comment on her contribution and legacy. In the film, Margaret revisits places where important events in her life took place and remembers stories which weave together the personal and the political, the local and the global.
