Excited to announce we are taking part in What The Cop? an exciting film initiative by Take One Action to help groups across Scotland explore climate issues in the lead-up to the UN Climate Conference being hosted in Glasgow in November. Throughout September and October, the initiative will be supporting community groups of all shapes and sizes across Scotland to host screenings; explore key climate justice issues and find collective routes to action in November – and beyond.

 

With us here at SaltSpace we have organised a series of film screenings as part of ‘What The Cop?’ to take place in our Community Space over the next few weeks centered around the climate crisis. 

 

The first of these screenings will be ‘THANK YOU FOR THE RAIN’ (2016) directed by Julia Dahr, this week Friday 22nd October 6.30pm, at our Community Space 98 Saltmarket St. G1 5LD, Glasgow.

 

From devastating droughts to flash floods, ‘THANK YOU FOR THE RAIN’ explores Kenyan farmer Kisilu Musya who has been documenting the effects of extreme weather on his farm, his family and his community for over five years. Determined to stop climate change in its tracks, he organises local farmer groups to spread awareness of the dangers of deforestation and monoculture – and ends up taking his message all the way to the UN Climate summit. But will anyone listen? Faced with international leaders’ inertia and arrogance, Kisilu strengthens his resolve to protect the planet and the soil which every farmer – and all of us – depend on.

What The Cop? Is supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network, and funded by Screen Scotland and National Lottery funding from the BFI.
