Living the Change explores solutions to the global crises we face today – solutions any one of us can be part of – through the inspiring stories of people pioneering change in their own lives and in their communities in order to live in a sustainable and regenerative way.
Directors Jordan Osmond and Antoinette Wilson have brought together stories from their travels, along with interviews with experts able to explain how we come to be where we are today. From forest gardens to composting toilets, community supported agriculture to timebanking, Living the Change offers ways we can rethink our approach to how we live.
Pandi free film screening + Director Q&A
Friday 27 July 7pm, Brixton Pound Cafe, 77 Atlantic Road, SW9 8PU
Mental health struggles are experienced by families all across the globe, but conversations about them often occur behind closed doors. After many years of family silence, director Maria-Saroja Ponnambalam investigates her uncle Pandi’s unexplained death. Pandi is an emerging filmmaker from Chennai inspired by Tamil, Bollywood and Hollywood films and characters. After migrating from South India to Canada, he faces stress from working at factory jobs, culture shock and isolation. Through a mix of home videos, interviews with her family, letters, and animated sequences from Pandi’s last script, Ponnambalam uncovers Pandi’s struggle with bipolar disorder throughout the final phase of his life.
Keep cool and carry on, towards a better future.
