Online film screening: The Letter

12/06/2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Online film evening: Zoom screening of The Letter: a message for our Earth (Off The Fence Productions, Director Nicolas Brown)
A Climate Fringe Festival event.

This is a high quality and powerful 81 minute documentary commissioned by Pope Francis as a call to action on climate change to protect ‘Our Common Home’. The focus is on climate injustice as it tells the story of three individuals and a couple from Senegal, India, the Amazon and Hawaii. The cameras follow them from their very different home settings to meet each other and the Pope in Rome, where they learn from, and inspire each other. There is some wonderful nature photography and the film is meaningful for people of all faiths or none.

See trailer below.

At the Zoom event on 12th June, there will be a short introduction before watching the film. Afterwards, stay on for half an hour or so if you can to reflect on the content and discuss if and how it can be used to advance knowledge and action in Skye, Raasay and through Highland.

If there is support from attendees, the film could be made available to watch and discuss in community settings around the area. Your feedback on that idea would be valued. If you can’t join us to watch together on the 12th you can watch on YouTube in your own time – but feedback is still welcome.
