Film screening of "The Sequel" followed by discussion

Bennet's Club


For our November event we are screening the new film THE SEQUEL. This will be one of its first screenings in the UK. This new film recognizes the fundamental unsustainability of today's society and dares to ask the big question: What will follow? It looks at the influential work of David Fleming, who dared to re-imagine a thriving civilization after the collapse of our current mainstream economies and inspired the Transition Towns movement. The film screening will be followed by a discussion. Please note the venue for this event is Bennet’s Club, 21 Leyton Rd, Harpenden AL5 2HU. The cost for this event is £4 (£3 for concessions), payable at the door. Join us for an inspiring film screening followed by discussion and questions and pledging how you can take action. ** More about Sustainable St Albans ** https://sustainablestalbans.org/ ** More about The Sequel and David Fleming ** http://thesequel.bullfrogcommunities.com/ https://www.flemingpolicycentre.org.uk/the-sequel "An excellent documentary tribute with wings that takes us to local food movements, repair cafés, and community celebrations to liven up The Sequel to the biophysical impossibility of endless growth. This film will awaken the intellect to harmonize with earth's systems...We find a treasure trove of ecological and humanitarian analysis and practices that call upon our higher selves to work for the good of all life." Jim Merkel, Author, Radical Simplicity: Small Footprints on a Finite Earth, Director, Global Living Project, Film Director, Saving Walden's World "I highly recommend The Sequel...Through two decades of work on climate issues, I've come to appreciate that our challenges are less political and technological than we imagine them to be. Rather, our core challenges are relational and social - of how we can come to understand ourselves as connected to community across scales from local to global. An inspirational and particularly useful touchstone for those thinking about and seeking to secure a just, sustainable and resilient future for all." Steve Adams, Director of Urban Resilience, Institute for Sustainable Communities
