Screening of ‘Water for Gold’ (NZ) – “A gold mine in the Yuba Watershed threatens to reopen on San Juan Ridge in California USA, despite a disastrous chain of events when the mine operated in the 1990s, and a proposed dewatering rate of millions of gallons per day. This is the story of what a community can do when they decide enough is enough, and that they will not trade their water for gold.”
1pm, ‘Walk the Talk’ (16 min) – in August 2015, a group of volunteers walked from Leicester to London to raise awareness around the social policies that impact on psychological distress, particularly within the homeless population.
The short film shows what they did and their subsequent meeting with Luciana Berger MP (former Shadow Minster of Mental Health). Thanks to Dani Harker, Trainee Clinical Psychologist for supporting this screening.
Join Nerina Boursinou and Daphne Mang for this special screening of the documentary, Future My Love.
Future My Love is a unique love story challenging our collective and personal utopias in search of freedom. At the brink of losing the idealistic love of her life, filmmaker Maja Borg takes us on a poetic road trip through the financial collapse, exploring a radically different economic and social model proposed by 95-year-old futurist Jacque Fresco.
How much freedom are we prepared to give to the ones we love? And how much responsibility are we ready to take for our society? Carefully weaving a texture of archive footage, black and white Super 8 film, and colour HD, Borg poignantly depicts the universal struggle between our heads and hearts in times of radical change.
