Join Stone Club for the first of two screenings they're hosting at Llais, A Year in a Field by BAFTA winning documentary filmmaker Christopher Morris.
A Year in a Field is the story of one Cornish field told over one climatic year.
Winter Solstice 2020: with his camera and tripod, Christopher Morris began filming each day in a field near his home.
He stopped filming on Winter Solstice 2021: a year that UN Secretary-General António Guterres, said was “make or break” for humanity to confront the climate crisis.
A Year In A Field is not made by a climate scientist. It is a local, lo-fi, low-impact film - in contrast to the overblown, blue-chip, carbon-generating film productions that fly the globe in pursuit of unfamiliar wonders to address the climate emergency through tech-driven cinematic dazzle - more akin to science fiction.
Christopher Morris invites us to slow down, as he films for a year in a West Cornwall field; to immerse ourselves in this quiet, direct-action of stillness, to take a breath and reflect on the planetary impacts of our brief human existence, under the watchful gaze of the Longstone, an ancient monolith that predominates this elemental landscape.
Start time: 2.15pm
