A new 3-month season of films looking at Politics in Cinema. All screenings introduced by James Harvey-Davitt, PhD Candidate in English and Media, Anglia Ruskin University. In Mr Smith Goes to Washington, Capra presents one of his boldest arguments for the merits of Congress. To this day, Jimmy Stewart’s idealistic naïveté remains one of the iconic representations of the responsibilities of power.
