Earth Keepers – a Review of the HGN Film Night

On the 3rd of April, HGN invited people to watch ‘Down to Earth’ at the Courtyard. Here is what HGN’s own Kate Gathercole made of it:

Last Wednesday evening, 3rd April 2019, more than 50 local people attended a Courtyard showing of the film Down To Earth. This beautiful and inspirational film is a collection of wise words from healers, visionaries and leaders around the world, all reflecting on our changing times – and our need to live a more connected life in this fast paced modern world. Put together by an American family seeking their own answers to the challenges ahead of us in a changing climate, the film is a celebration of human energy and the power and beauty of the natural world.

Of those who came along to the film showing approximately half of the audience stayed behind after the film to join a brief reflection on the films message, and how we were affected by it – including our sense of ourselves as local ‘Keepers of the Earth’. Our discussions included an update for those present about the current activity of the Herefordshire Green Network and Extinction Rebellion from Kate Gathercole and David Gillam, as well as the inspiring news about Herefordshire Council’s recent unanimous Declaration of a Climate Emergency.

The next HGN supported film showing at The Courtyard will be AGA, showing on 12th June 2019. This film recently sold out at Borderlines, so we expect tickets to go fast: https://www.borderlinesfilmfestival.co.uk/film/%C3%A1ga-pg
