This video excerpt is taken from 'The Battle of Orgreave' a video work by Jeremy Deller & Mike Figgis.
16 June 2001 - 17 June 2001
Jeremy Deller's reenactment of the 1984 clash between striking miners and police at Orgreave in South Yorkshire on 17 June 2001 was filmed by Mike Figgis for Artangel Media and Channel 4, and aired on Sunday, 20 October 2002.
This is an excerpt from this film which intercuts dramatic photographic stills from the clashes in 1984 with footage of the clashes re-enacted in 2001, together with moving and powerful testimonies, to tease out the complexities of this bitter struggle.
