Set in 80's Liverpool: 'Business as Usual' (1988, Dir. Lezli-An Barret)
WCS Presents | In keeping with the theme of the exhibition, WCS welcomes you to a screening of Business as Usual, a 1987 drama filmed in Liverpool. Starring Glenda Jackson and a young Craig Charles, the film follows a manageress as she fights to reclaim her job after being sacked for confronting the regional manager over his unwanted advances towards her colleague. Dealing with the social issues of the time from Thatcher-era Britain to workers unions and womens' rights, it is a film that closely captures the mood of 80's Liverpool.

Buy 'Order of Nothing' by Sun Drums
WCS Presents | Order of Nothing is an exploratory music commission created by collective Sun Drums, for the 2012 WCS exhibition Inhospitable Landscape. At ten minutes long, it is a dark, aggressive and industrial electronic piece that explores themes of alienation, hostility and dystopia to devastating effect. Inspired by a new technological and industrial revolution and the superseding of digital machinery over human labour, the piece begins bleak and mechanical before giving way to a more human kind of fear and isolation.
