Update, 13/03/2013: the 11 April film Bhopali has been swapped in the schedules with Edible City at short notice due to problems with the film’s distributor.
Bhopali is now being shown in its place on 14 March — a powerful documentary about the world’s worst industrial disaster which devastated and contaminated Bhopal, India in 1984. Today, the suffering continues, prompting victims to fight for justice and corporate responsibility, which has long been ignored.
The Birmingham Film Co-op is screening the feature-length documentary Edible City, portraying the stories of extraordinary people digging their hands into the dirt, working to transform their communities and doing something truly revolutionary: growing local Good Food systems that are socially just, environmentally sound, and economically resilient.
PLUS: A Seed Swap table, and a talk from Birmingham’s Urban Veg group (who took over care of the former Gardeners’ World plots in Edgbaston) — and who are now looking to open up opportunities for Birmingham and its citizens to ‘grow what it eats’.
Doors Open at 6.30pm, film at 7pm.
To watch the film, head to the Midlands Co-operative Member Relations Centre at the Birmingham & Midlands Institute (“The BMI”), Margaret Street, Birmingham, B3 3BS. Limited parking is available on the surrounding streets and is Pay and Display until 7:30pm.
Tickets are £2.50 (members) and £4.50 (non-members). Membership’s only £10 a year for individuals, and you get your first film free, so what’s stopping you? Join a co-operative today! » Read more: Birmingham Film Co-op screening ‘Edible City’ on 11th of April [UPDATE]
