Film screening and Q&A/Discussion Round
Join us to watch the beautiful film Radical Resilience and have the chance to discuss the film with other activists as well as with the filmmakers!
Here is a short description on the film from the filmmakers’ website:
“Radical Resilience is a film project by activists, for activists (or anyone involved in social or environmental change, however they define themselves), that aims to spread awareness and encourage discussion about the effects of burnout within our movements, both individually and collectively.
How could we better deal with the difficult and painful situations we experience through our activism and in our lives? What unconscious tendencies do we play out in our lives that stop us from effectively processing our experiences, supporting ourselves/others through them, and lead us to unsustainable ways of working that can cause burnout? What forms of hierarchies, privileges and oppression do we recreate within our groups, how do they impact on us, and how can we change that? What effect does the loss of people, their skills and relationships, have on our movements? How can we keep our movements strong and sustainable, with an emphasis on caring for each other and being aware of our individual and collective needs? How much is enough for us to do in this world, where seemingly so much needs to be done???
These questions and many more are all relevant to the subject(s) of this film.” (https://radicalresilience.noblogs.org/)
We will begin the evening by watching the film to exchange our thoughts about it afterwards. The event will take place on big blue button:
After having entered your name, you have to accept the audio-test by pressing the “thumbs up” option and then you’re in the meeting.
You can find the trailer here
Everyone is welcome, whether you have been an activist for a long time or if you are very new to the climate justice movement.
The film will have English subtitles and the discussion round will also be held in English.
We’ll do a workshop with the filmmakers on the themes of the film on Sunday the 17th. Please find the event description on the Events page or on facebook.
