Washington, D.C. — Amazon Studios is inviting National Press Club members (and one guest) to attend a free screening of the historical documentary “Peterloo” at the Landmark E Street Cinema, 555 11th St. N.W., Thursday, March 28, at 7 P.M.

A Q&A will follow the movie with director Mike Leigh. Julian Borger, Editor at The Guardian, will moderate the Q&A.

The producers describe the documentary as “an epic portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre, where a peaceful pro-democracy rally at St Peter’s Field in Manchester, England, turned into one of the bloodiest and most notorious episodes in British history. The massacre saw British government forces charge into a crowd of more than 60,000 that had gathered to demand political reform and protest against rising levels of poverty. The forces killed many protesters and injured hundreds more, sparking a nationwide outcry but also further government suppression. The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper.”

(The screening is at the Landmark ‘E Street Cinema’ at 555 11th St NW, and not at the Club.)
