Ethel MacDonald 'An Anarchist's Story'

This drama-documentary tells the story of Ethel MacDonald a forgotten legend.

Ethel's own intimate recollections are presented through a mix of documentary and drama. Supporting commentary spoken by David Hayman paired with expert interviews, including Noam Chomsky, provides background knowledge of 1930's European Politics and a further insight into the young Scot's motives, actions and social situation. The film links her own personal drama to archive footage of Barcelona.
Ethel reported on Barcelona's widely-heard Anarchist radio station. In the crackdown following the events of May 1937 she helped anarchists wanted by the Communist secret police escape and smuggled letters and food into prison. Through her activities in helping anarchists escape Spain, she became renowned in the British press as the "Scots Scarlet Pimpernel".
