Février 1956. Ceux qui allaient devenir les hérauts de la "Nouvelle vague" britannique décident de se regrouper pour faire connaître leurs films. Lindsay Anderson avec ses amis Karel Reisz et Tony Richardson, et Lorenza Mazzetti, présentent leurs courts métrages au National Film Theatre de Londres. Le "Free Cinema" est né - mouvement fondateur de l'histoire du cinéma anglais, précurseur du réalisme social de la fin des années cinquante et du début des années soixante. La première programmation est si retentissante que cinq autres programme "Free Cinema" vont suivre. Ce "mouvement" se définit avant tout comme une vision nouvelle du métier de cinéaste tranchant avec l'orthodoxie conservatrice du cinéma dominant. Documentaires en partie produits grâce au British Film Institute Experimental Fund, ces films racontent en toute liberté l'histoire des petites gens, leur quotidien, leurs loisirs et leur désarroi. En donnant la parole à ceux qui en sont le plus souvent privés, ces réalisateurs remettent en cause l'establishment et livrent un commentaire humain et poétique sur le monde qui les entoure.
