Manchester Film Co-operative would like to invite you to a screening of the documentary film The Brussels Business.
In the early 90s two young men discover the enormous influence of lobbying in Brussels. One becomes the leading lobby-watchdog in Brussels, the other one becomes a top lobbyist on world trade issues, representing 50% of the EU’s economy – banks, insurances, telecoms, touristic operators and a wide range of business federations.
By following one’s investigations and the other’s career this film takes us on a journey into the corridors of power of the biggest economy on earth – the European Union. In the form of a docu-thriller, THE BRUSSELS BUSINESS tries to answer a question millions of Europeans ask themselves: Who runs the European Union?
Following the screening we have a post film discussion on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). If you want to know more about TTIP and the EU we will have speakers from 38 Degrees, the University of Manchester and Ethical Consumer to ask any questions you might have.
Date: Tuesday 28th October 2014, 7pm.
