The environmental lobby has been using film nights to disseminate information, stimulate debate and create a community. The South Devon Green Party are continuing in this vein with a screening of Rebecca Hosking’s The Future of Farming, at Totnes Civic Hall on Wednesday, June 2 at 7.30pm.
The screening will be followed by a debate, with a panel including Rebecca Hosking, Graham Harvey (agricultural story editor on The Archers, and author of The Carbon Fields), Roger
Creagh-Osbourne, second on the Green Party’s list of candidates for the European Parliamentary election, and Geoff Sayers (local organic diary farmer and owner of the Well Hung Meat company), with Robert Somerville, of South Devon Green Party.
Documentary filmmaker Rebecca, Modbury’s original plastic bag campaigner, won a bursary to the BBC Natural History Unit to become one of the only three women wildlife filmmakers and told the Guardian: “My place in life is educating people, through my camera work, about what is happening to our environment -and that is what I am now returning to.”
Meanwhile, here is the trailer to Rebecca’s Message on the Waves documentary
