Film Screening

‘Wetheuncivilised: A Life Story’

Friday, February 16, 2018, 7:00 PM 10:00 PM, Haslingfield Methodist Church

As part of the city-wide Films for Our Future Festival, Pivotal, an arts organisation for sustainability, is screening this beautiful documentary about a young couple on a quest throughout Britain for a more satisfying and sustainable way of living. Discouraged by their urban lifestyles, Lily and Pete set out to discover other ways of living in the modern world. Their journey didn’t provide them with easy answers, but it did inspire them and introduce them to some of the new ways of thinking that may just change the way we all live and help to protect the planet.

Includes interviews with author and TV presenter Peter Owen-Jones (formerly of Haslingfield), filmmaker Bruce Parry, writer Paul Kingsnorth, permaculture pioneer Patrick Whitefield and many more.

The event includes time to talk about actions people might like to take locally, food tasting thanks to Country Kitchen and eco products to buy (please bring cash!).

The film includes a scene of childbirth.

This is a Free event, all are welcome. Donations to cover costs will be gratefully accepted.
