Need: No Surrender - Short Film about the suffragettes

Hi,

My name's Jamie Robinson and I'm a third year Film and Television Production student at the University of York. As part of my final year I am working on a film, No Surrender. No Surrender is a period drama set during the early 20th Century, and follows the story of two women, Maggie and Jennifer. Jennifer is a young, middle-class, radical suffragette fighting for equality. Jennifer gets arrested and is sent to prison where she meets Maggie, an elderly working-class wardress stuck in the past with regards to her views on women's rights. The story follows these two characters and the psychological battle between them as they gradually understand more about each other's world view, and explores themes which still resonate today; generational differences, class differences, and, most importantly, gender equality.

In order to make this project a reality we are currently fundraising, so I am posting the link to the film's indiegogo fundraising page here, as I feel it may be of interest to this community. If you are interested in the film it would be very much appreciated if you could share this link (and, if you're feeling generous, even making a contribution!).

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you,

Jamie
