Film Nights – Connection in a COVID World – The Growing Season
7 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 our children is the theme for the second film of the series.
The Growing Season has been described as the “magic that starts a conversation.” Released by US-based filmmaker Evan Briggs in 2017, the film explores what happens when you situate a childcare centre within a care home for the elderly. Answer? Everyone thrives. This film helps us to see why. It also pushes us to ask why: Why don’t we do this more often? Why does this seem radical? What are we scared of? Panel members will include representatives of Apples & Honey Nightingale Nursery, based in London, who have already confronted such questions and who have sent up an intergenerational space designed to care for both the young and the old together. Their story proves that it can be done here in the UK. We hope it might get the audience asking how we can make more of that happen.
