Film Nights – Connection in a COVID World – Cracked Up
14 November @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm£12
Living in a COVID world has brought home the importance of connection. It has shown us, with absolute clarity, how dependent we are on each other. We now need to ask what more can we do to care for each other, for ourselves and for the earth? Our Film Nights Series allows us to come together to ask such questions. Each event screens a thought-provoking documentary film, followed by a panel discussion, chaired by Suzanne Zeedyk and David Cameron.
Caring for ourselves is the theme for the third film of the series.
Cracked Up has been described as “riveting, heart wrenching and beautifully realised”. Directed by Michelle Esrick and released in 2108, the film traces the story of US comedian Darrell Hammond, who came to fame through the late-night television series Saturday Night Live. As his addiction, flashbacks and behaviour escalated, he began to suspect his childhood contained more trauma than he had realised. The film charts his journey to learn the truth. It gives viewers a gripping realisation of how much courage a journey of recovery requires and how much freedom it yields. Our panel of three individuals who have also travelled a path to recovery – Michelle Brennan-Jones, Ross Wilson and James Docherty – will share their insights and their encouragement for others on a journey of healing.
