Transition Thursday and The Power of Just Doing Stuff - Swaffham 4 July

An evening with Rob Hopkins, organised by Transition Swaffham, Transition Downham Market and Transition King's Lynn is happening at The Green Britain Centre in Swaffham on Thursday 4th July at 7pm.

Rob will be launching his new book The Power of Just Doing Stuff and engaging in a Q&A. We will also be building a picture of the stuff we are all doing in Norfolk so do come and help us fill in the maps! This is a really important opportunity for us to come together and think about how we can create a positive vision and transition for this great part of the world. If you are interested in helping out before the event, or on the night, please e-mail John Knock at johnknock2@hotmail.co.uk.

There will be refreshments available and this will be a great chance to meet other like-minded people from around Norfolk. All welcome. (Ben Margolis)

FILM Village at the End of the World - Tuesday 4 June

New Dogwoof documentary shows at Cinema City 

Fascinated by the resilience of the few remaining polar communities, Brick Lane director Sarah Gavron and her cameraman partner David Katznelson spent almost three years filming in Niaqornat, a remote Inuit hamlet in northern Greenland with just 59 inhabitants.

Under government threat of relocation if their numbers fell below 50, the locals were determined to reopen a local fish factory in order to stem the slow exodus of their youngsters, and vowed to battle on against an unsympathetic bureaucracy “until the last man’s left standing”. The stark beauty of their harsh landscape and their equally harsh way of life – they rely entirely on hunting and fishing, and the long winter months are totally without daylight – contrast with their quirky humour and robust traditions.Village at the End of the World is a portrait of a traditional community struggling against the challenges of globalisation and climate change.

Opens 4 June, 6.30pm. Book online on Cinema City website or call the Box Office: 0871 902 5724 (10p a minute from a landline)  

Dogwoof are giving away 2 tickets to each screening – email patrick@dogwoof.com to enter the draw.
