March Movie – Human Part II

At the end of last year we screened the first part of Human the movie. People really liked it and were keen for us to screen the remaining parts. So join us for part II of this extraordinary record of what it means to be Human. Part II covers the themes of war, forgiving, homosexuality, family and life after death.

Human the movie poster

“I am one man among seven billion others. For the past 40 years, I have been photographing our planet and its human diversity, and I have the feeling that humanity is not making any progress. We can’t always manage to live together.
Why is that?
I didn’t look for an answer in statistics or analysis, but in man himself.”

Yann Arthus-Bertrand

“HUMAN is a collection of stories about and images of our world, offering an immersion to the core of what it means to be human. Through these stories full of love and happiness, as well as hatred and violence, HUMAN brings us face to face with the Other, making us reflect on our lives. From stories of everyday experiences to accounts of the most unbelievable lives, these poignant encounters share a rare sincerity and underline who we are – our darker side, but also what is most noble in us, and what is universal. Our Earth is shown at its most sublime through never-before-seen aerial images accompanied by soaring music, resulting in an ode to the beauty of the world, providing a moment to draw breath and for introspection.HUMAN is a politically engaged work which allows us to embrace the human condition and to reflect on the meaning of our existence.”

IMDB score 8.9/10 !

February Movie Night – Sugar Coated

“How the food industry sugar-coated science, sweetened the food supply, and seduced a planet, one spoonful at a time.”

Sugarcoated2

“How did the food industry get us to stop asking the question: is sugar toxic? It all starts with a secret PR campaign dating back to the 1970s. For forty years, Big Sugar deflected all threats to its multi-billion dollar empire, while sweetening the world’s food supply. As obesity, diabetes, and heart disease rates skyrocket, doctors are now treating the first generation of children suffering from fatty liver disease. The sugar industry is once again under siege. They dodged the bullet once. Will they do it again?” IMDB score = 7.7/10
