Inside Film 1968 29 mins


The clash of acting and activism is central to this 1967 encounter. Redgrave, 30, examines the consequences of angering the Establishment now that she is "a property", with references to Cuba and the Vietnam War. Engaged and wholly unapologetic, she dissects the power of celebrity with real force, concluding that "I want to find out about ideas I don't believe in".
