THURSDAY - ‘Kanyini
A documentary based on the life and philosophy of Bob Randall, an elder of the Yankunytjatjara people of Central Australia. It explores his idyllic early life, and the reasons for the tragic problems in many Australian Aboriginal communities today. The film finishes with a sense of hope.

FRIDAY - ‘Spirit in Mass
A 40 minute documentary (made by one of his daughters), about the sculptor Alan Thornhill and his unconventional journey into sculpture . He has devised a way of working which embraces spontaneity and the unforseen; an approach which has inspired sculpture students and produced a body of challenging work drawn from personal concerns of the late 20th century.

SATURDAY - ‘Earth Pilgrim
A spiritual journey into the ethereal landscape of Dartmoor with Resurgence Editor Satish Kumar, the world-renowned ecologist who reflects on our connection to our natural environment. Through the film, he introduces the Dartmoor scenes and sights that most inspire him and contemplates what they reveal, and the lessons they hold for humanity. On all three days the programme will begin with ‘Carbon Weevils’ an ecological animation made by Tim Britton of Forkbeard Fantasy.




The programme runs for about 1hr 20m
