Can small people, in small places, doing small things, change the world?

One of Mexico’s most remarkable ecosystems, the cloud forest, is under threat as coffee plantations, cattle grazing and an increase in human population all take their toll. In response, the people of a small town in Veracruz take it upon themselves to “be the change” and protect this unique habitat. Building their own homes, schools and farms, they set out to restructure their entire culture, from the food they grow to their children’s education, radically redefining their relationship with nature – and each other – along the way.

With birdsong, the sound of water flowing and the wind as its only musical soundtrack, this gentle, contemplative documentary offers an intimate and inspiring portrait of community resilience.

Plus Audience discussion, Café-bar/refreshments, Short Films

Join us after the film for inspiring conversations and opportunities for creative, effective personal action, with guests including representatives from local community initiatives.

Screening with: Plantae (Guilherme Gehr, Brazil, 2017, 10mins)

Presented in partnership with the Glasgow City Council as part of their Sustainable Glasgow project.
