A moving portrait of resilience on the frontlines of climate change.

From devastating droughts to flash floods, Kenyan farmer Kisilu Musya has been documenting the effects of extreme weather on his farm, his family and his community for over five years. Determined to stop climate change in its tracks, he organises local farmer groups to spread awareness of the dangers of deforestation and monoculture – and ends up taking his message all the way to the UN Climate summit. But will anyone listen? Faced with international leaders’ inertia and arrogance, Kisilu strengthens his resolve to protect the planet and the soil which every farmer – and all of us – depend on.

Combining stunning cinematography with hand-held, first-person accounts, this vividly textured documentary echoes the strength of spirit of its remarkable protagonist.

BEYOND THE SCREEN:
We will be joined by Sally Foster Fulton and Chris Hegarty (Christian Aid Scotland), Kirtana Chandrasekaran (Friends of the Earth International) and other guests to explore food sustainability and climate justice.

Tickets:
£10 / £8 Concs. / £5.50 Under 25 (with valid ID)
