Thursday 16th September 6.30 pm at The Yard Theatre, Old Birley St.
A film about climate change produced by ReelMCR with residents from North Manchester
” A total of 85 residents from Charlestown and Higher Blackley were involved in writing, acting in, and directing the film, despite many of them having no acting experience whatsoever. Ages ranged from 87-year-old Ralph Wagstaff to baby Jenson Gibbs, while members of the White Moss Youth Centre in Charlestown and the Manchester Media Academy also took part.
The Green Wave lasts 40 minutes and was made by the REELmcr project, who worked with the residents to develop a storyline about ordinary people making a real contribution to tackling climate change.
Set in the year 2080, the film describes the global spread of The Green Wave Project, from its beginnings in north Manchester as a simple way of encouraging residents to get involved in recycling, conserving electricity, sourcing local food and growing their own fruit and vegetables.”
