CINEMA & TALK | BLUE HEART ~ THE FIGHT FOR EUROPE’S LAST WILD RIVERS | THURSDAY 11 OCTOBER

This is a screening of a celebrated film about Europe’s last wild rivers, followed by a panel discussion with speakers from the University of Exeter, National Trust, Flow Partnership, and South West Water

Farm League, Bosnia & Herzegovina

The film “Blue Heart” aims to raise public awareness about the negative impact of the Balkan Rivers hydropower boom. More than 3,000 hydropower dams are being planned or built in the Balkans — disrupting Europe’s last free-flowing rivers and threatening communities and wildlife. 91% of these planned projects will generate little energy, despite being extremely expensive to build and to maintain.

After the film, there will be an informal panel discussion with Richard Higgs, programme manager of the Riverlands project at the National Trust, a £10 million project to bring the UK rivers back to life; Minni Jain, director of the Flow Partnership, an NGO working in the UK, India and Slovenia which is rejuvenating desertified and flooded lands with community collaboration; and Dr David Smith from SouthWest Water Upstream Thinking project , which aims find natural landscape-scale solutions to improve water quality. The discussion will be chaired by Dr Kate Baker, Research Fellow at The University of Exeter.

This film is organised by Agile Rabbit and sponsored by Society for Conservation Biology Freshwater Working Group. This event is being run in tandem with the film being screened at Swansea University with the AMBER project, an EU funded initiate to reconnecting European rivers together.

CINEMA | INCREDIBLES 2 | TUESDAY 23 OCTOBER

A half-term special: everyone’s favourite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight.

Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) is left at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
