Stuart Christie has a lot under his belt: anarchist, former anti-fascist prisoner in Spain, founder of the UK Anarchist Black Cross, founder of Cienfuegos Press, and more recently publishing books under his own imprint ChristieBooks. For a number of years he has been building up an amazing collection of films on his website, which now contains hundreds of films and videos, including Spanish Civil War newsreels, Jean Vigo and Luis Bunuel features, anarchist biopics and more current radical news footage. If you are at all interested in anarchism and film, it is well worth taking a look. Check it out here.
In addition, Christie is working on a new anarchist journal, called Arena, which is being published in collaboration with PM Press and the first issue should be out early next year. The first issue is focusing on anarchist cinema, and is guest edited by Richard Porton, author of the fabulous book Film and the Anarchist Imagination, published by Verso.
