Why we are showing this film
This is the first Leanne Pooley film we've screened at Thoughtful Thursdays. It is a documentary that combines archive footage with recreated sequences to bring one of the world's defining achievements to dramatic life. This form of documentary-drama is sometimes the only option for historical stories and therefore justified. However other dramatisations of fact such as biographical films like Rocketman are a further departure away from the pure documentary genre, and therefore outside of the scope of Thoughtful Thursdays.
