Join us for a FREE film screening of 'Of Walking on Thin Ice'
Of Walking on Thin Ice is a film made by Benjamin Wigley, following the 500-mile journey (Camino to COP26) made on foot by hundreds of climate activists from Bristol and London to Glasgow for the COP26 Climate Conference in November 2021. It is a beautiful film which captures the spirit of hope in action embodied by the Camino, and the community of care and connection that was formed on this journey. The film shows us not only how we can advocate and influence but also BE the change that we want for our world. The important message of the film makes it a valuable vehicle with which to continue our conversations about the climate crisis and what we can do about it.
The film screening will start with a short Q&A and panel discussion, taking part are Ben Wigley – the filmmaker, Barbara Keal – Artist and Creator of the Coat of Hope, Lorraine and Leon Panitzke who walked the Camino to COP and renowned filmmaker Andrew Kötting whose film Gallivant follows his journey around the coastline of Britain in the company of his grandmother Gladys and his daughter Eden.
Along the journey people bought along patches they had created to sew onto a cloak worn by artist Barbara Keal, together they created a garment that carries the hopes, griefs, prayers and messages of individuals along the route. Barbara Keal’s ‘Coat of Hope’ will be on display at the screening.
