Filmed over 18 months between April 2013 and October 2014, made from both original and non original sequences, Save People Not Banks is a not for profit film made under the terms of the Fair Use Act for critical analysis, social commentary and educational purposes.
Following a group around the country - 'We Save People Not Banks' highlighting issues of ideological austerity and how it has affect people of the UK over the past 6 years. From teaching, to legal aid, the NHS, disability rights, emergency services, workers rights and human rights, there has been a progressive dismantling of society which has run almost unchecked since the global bank bailouts of 2008 - establishments built and paid for by us and our parents over generations, nothing is beyond reach and now it is all for sale.
Austerity is the answer for all main political parties because they fail to ask the right questions.
