Named in tribute to the Labour Party’s ‘for the many, not the few’ manifesto commitment, Daniel Draper’s film charts the work of a host of party members working under Jeremy Corbyn in the leadup to the 2019 General Election, including Dan Carden MP, Syed Anwar-ul-Haq and Claire Tierney. Filmed over three years, Manifesto covers a period of tumultuous political strife in which  the spotlight was turned on Brexit, funding for the NHS, and the fight for workers’ rights.

A wonderfully crafted tribute to Draper’s hometown of Walton, Manifesto rounds off the director’s ‘Hope trilogy’ of films chronicling the work of the Labour Party between 2015 and 2019, and exploring attempts to champion the work of working-class communities, as well as granting them a vital voice in both politics and on film.
