This event combines a screening of the short (20 minute) film Back to the Garden with a Q & A with experts on gardening for nature - how to nurture native flowers and plants and the insects, birds and mammals that depend upon them in any public or private garden or plot.
As part of the Films for Our Future Festival, Pivotal is screening this beautiful documentary about a young couple on a quest throughout Britain for a more satisfying and sustainable way of living. Disillusioned by their urban lifestyles of consumption and alienation, Lily and Pete set out to discover other ways of living in the modern world. Their journey didn't provide them with easy answers, but it did inspire them and introduce them to some of the new ways of thinking that may just change the way we all live and help to protect the planet.
Donations will be accepted to cover costs of this screening.

The stunning new feature by documentarian Bruce Parry (Tribe, Amazon, Arctic).
Tawai is the word the nomadic hunter-gatherers of Borneo use to describe their inner feeling of connection to nature. In this dreamy, philosophical and sociological look at life, explorer Bruce Parry travels the world to learn from people living lives very differently to our own. From the jungles of Malaysia to the tributaries of the Amazon, Tawai is a quest for reconnection, providing a powerful voice from the heart of the forest itself.
Bruce will be on hand for a Q and A following the screening.
Pivotal continues, with a small-scale, home-made, collaborative festival this November!
Pivotal, in collaboration with our friends Cambridge Carbon Footprint, Transition Cambridge, and Friends of the Earth Cambridge, are taking over the Museum of Technology on Cambridge's riverside, for a night and a day on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th November.
We aim to keep the conversations going, and have chosen this iconic venue to highlight the link between the environment and technology, with us, the human community, the piece in-between. We are partnering with these 3 great fellow NGO's to highlight the great work we all do, and share our common goals. We're working on bringing you a festival that takes over the museum with films, conversations and maybe provocations, spoken word and some story-making, music, art, food and drink, and lots more.....watch this space!
And in the meantime, please help us raise some funding to get the festival going: please pledge for our crowd-funding campaign on crowdfunded.co.uk and share the page!
