TICKETED EXTERNALLY. REFER TO WEBSITE.
Modern life is fast-paced, complicated, and too often focused on individualism. This programme is a cautionary tale of dystopian extremes, touching drama, and documentaries that hit close to home. Featuring award-winning Irish, Turkish, Taiwanese & Swiss animation, Ghanaian and Belgian drama, and some powerful and deeply moving Australian and UK documentary.
Hosted by Cyrenians homelessness charity, panel discussion follows the screening with guest Jamie Robson (Actor, Writer & Producer) Stephan Pierre Mitchell (Film-maker) and Ali Kerr of the Cyrenians; exploring the power of film to change society and to highlight how social policies and personal actions can combat exclusion.
For over 50 years Cyrenians have been delivering sustainable solutions for the causes and consequences of homelessness.
