The Rochdale Pioneers [Feature Film]

Inspired by the 1944 film Men of Rochdale, THE ROCHDALE PIONEERS will retell the story of those who founded the modern co-operative movement; a movement that changed the face of business, affects the lives of a global community and will shape the future of commerce.

Produced by the Co-operative British Youth Film Academy and with Darkwood's Mark S. Wright and David Jenkins lending their services on Production Sound, the feature had its television premiere on Film4 on 11th November 2012 as part of the British Connection Season. Throughout the shoot, the wonderfully talented Darren White captured everything behind the scenes on film and pulled it all together to produce a series of Documentary episodes that give a great insight into the making of the film.
