Sustainable Bungay would like to invite you to the next film night at the Community centre in Bungay on Friday 22nd February, 7.30pm at Bungay Community Centre.
Play Again is a documentary film exploring the consequences of a childhood removed from nature. The film follows a group of american adolescents as they are taking into the wild,away from the 8 hour average time they would be spending in front of a screen on a daily basis.
Lots more info about the film and to see the trailer : http://playagainfilm.com/
Many of the films we show are free to screen to the public, but sometimes we pay for the right to do so (generally between £25 and £100), we also hire the room at the community centre. For this reason film nights are £3 minimum donation. You’re welcome to bring your own drinks (we have glasses).
More about our film nights:
In 2013 Sustainable Bungay’s new Film Nights at the Community Centre open with two documentaries about our critical reconnection with the earth. On 22nd January we’re showing Play Again, an award winning Ground Productions film exploring the consequences of a childhood removed from nature, directed by Tonje Hessen Schei. This moving and humorous documentary follows six teenagers who, like the “average American child,” spend five to fifteen hours a day behind screens. Play Again unplugs these teens and takes them on their first wilderness adventure – no electricity, no mobile phone coverage, no computers.
On 12th April Bungay Community Bees presents Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from Taggart Siegel, director of The Real Dirt on Farmer John. Taking us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, this engaging and ultimately uplifting film weaves an unusual and dramatic story of the struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world including Michael Pollan, Gunther Hauk and Vandana Shiva. Together they reveal both the problems and the solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature.
