Screening following by a Q&A with the filmmakers and local activists.

Disillusioned by a cultural story of consumption and alienation, a newly married couple are called to action. Carrying with them their unborn child, they embark on a year-long journey around the UK, searching for the seeds of an alternative culture and with it hope for the future. On this quest, they take with them a question – What could an uncivilised world look like?

We follow the filmmakers’ quest on this intimate journey as they speak to grassroots activists alongside the pioneering voices of Satish Kumar (The Ecologist), Polly Higgins (Ecocide Lawyer), Mac Macartney (Embercombe), Bruce Parry (Explorer), Mark Boyle (Moneyless Manifesto), Martin Shaw (School of Myth), Glennie Kindred (Artist and writer), The late Patrick Whitefield (Permaculturist) and Simon Fairlie (The Land).

‘wetheuncivilised, A Life Story’, is a grassroots documentary film project that seeks to challenge the ‘civilised’ story of separation. The film looks at the points in our lives when we have an opportunity to step into an ‘uncivilised’ story of relationship, connection and belonging.

Part of Bristol Big Green Week ABOUT THE TOUR The Filmmakers have been inspired by the Shodh Yatra, an Indian term, meaning: “to undertake a journey for the search of knowledge, creativity and innovations at the grassroots”. Information is carried from one village to the next, and shared in order to perpetuate and evolve vital skills. This summer Lily and Pete will share their experience and learning from one place to the next, connecting folk, and knitting together an uncivilised network across the UK. Fuelled by waste cooking oil, and powered by solar they will screen the film for communities, festivals and transition towns, in locations ranging from community woodlands to village halls.
