Green Film Festival @ UEA: The Reluctant Radical
Thursday 16 May 2019, 7:30pm - 9:30pm
Lecture Theatre, Enterprise Centre
Get involved with Green Film Festival @ UEA.
This highly engaging and affecting film follows activist Ken Ward through a series of direct actions, culminating with his participation in the shut-down of all the US tar sands oil pipelines on 11 October 2016. The film reveals both the personal costs and also fulfilment that comes from following one's moral calling. Ken has no regrets and his certainty leaves the audience to consider if he is out of touch with reality, or if it is the rest of society that is delusional for not acting when faced with the unsettling evidence that we are collectively destroying our world.
This film will also be followed by an audience Q&A via Skype with the filmmaker Lindsey Grayzel and activist Ken Ward.
