Inhabit - UK film premiere

Inhabit - UK film premiere

Presented by Permaculture Picturehouse, Permaculture Magazine & the Permaculture Association.

Presented in The Light, straight after the IPCUK Conference which happened in the same building.

Inhabit is a feature length documentary introducing permaculture: a design method that offers an ecological lens for solving issues related to agriculture, economics, governance, and on. The film presents a vast array of projects, concepts, and people, and it translates the diversity of permaculture into something that can be understood by an equally diverse audience. For those familiar, it will be a call to action and a glimpse into what's possible - what kind of projects and solutions are already underway. For those unfamiliar, it will be an introduction to a new way of being and a new way of relating to the Earth. For everyone, it will be a reminder that humans are capable of being planetary healing forces.

Followed by video-link discussion with the film-makers.

Donations on the door. Suggest £4 with proportion of proceeds going to the film-makers.
