On our first film night this year we watched Robert Newman’s History of oil. What a fantastic film! Putting oil center stage as crucial to the understanding of the last 100 years of our History. This is a film that will really make you revisit and question alot of the history we have taken as being the truth.
I strongly recommend it to everyone, please contact me if you would like to borrow it otherwise you can watch it on You tube although as it is a film of a performance the quality is pretty poor.

Coming up this Friday the 9th March at 7.30pm we will be watching the exciting film “What about me?”. An explosion of music and philosophy. Producers Jamie Catto (Faithless) and Duncan Bridgeman travelled to 50 different location across the globe in the name of exploring the complexities of human nature. They gathered hundreds of interviews and recorded many music sessions and songs. They took an inspiring and alarming look at the numerous ways we humans drive ourselves crazy. This is a really energetic and raw film! “Needy in relationships, insatiable in desire, avoiding all pain with happy pills and unable to stop thinking – but how we still manage to be inspired and creative”.

I hope you will be able to join us for this screening.
Future screenings will include “Into Eternity”, by Danish director Michael Madsen, about the creation of a deep geological repository for nuclear waste on an island off Finland. We also hope to arrange a screening of brand new film “In Transition : A story of resilience and hope in extraordinary times”. Watch this space for future film night dates.

Postscript: We all enjoyed “What About Me” so much we had to replay a few songs and get down and (barn) dance. Photo above by Mark Watson
