Special Documentary Screening: The Bridge Rising

With a nod to Ealing Comedy, packed with humour, twists and bittersweet surprises, ‘The Bridge Rising’ tells the inside story of the 10-year battle against the UK’s first Private Finance Initiative: the Skye Bridge tolls. One of the longest-running uprisings in modern Scottish history, the campaign pitted plucky Scottish islanders against the might of the government and the Bank of America. An epic feel-good story of a modern rebellion, 2014 marks the tenth anniversary of the end of the tolls and the protest remains relevant to a new generation in the year of the Scottish referendum on independence.
