United Diversity Bridport and Sustainable Bridport present: MMMM! Monday Movie, Meal & Mingling

Inspiring documentaries, short films by local filmmakers, organic veg curries, hot and cold drinks.

This is the fifth in an exciting new fortnightly-ish event for Bridport in the lovely White Room at the Chapel in the Garden (entry via Rax Lane)

This week we'll be screening:


Short from around 6:30pm and then the main feature from around 7:15pm:

Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai (1 hour 20 minutes)



Taking Root tells the dramatic story of Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai whose simple act of planting trees grew into a nationwide movement to safeguard the environment, protect human rights, and defend democracy—a movement for which this charismatic woman became an iconic inspiration. 

It has been selected for viewing at over 50 film festivals worldwide and has won numerous awards including The Audience Award at Hot Docs, in Toronto. It was broadcast on PBS/ Independent Lens


"It is the people who must save the environment. It is the people who must make their leaders change. And we cannot be intimidated. So we must stand up for what we believe in.” 

- Wangari Maathai


 
We'll also have:


Delicious organic vegetarian curries each week from Vegie Vortex (who also alternate do the curries at Beach and Barnicott), plus hot and cold drinks.
