Forced to Adapt (three short films by Deej Phillips)
Monday 13 November 19.00 – 21.00
St John's Church, 73 Waterloo Road London SE1 8TY
The climate crisis continues to wreak havoc disproportionately in the global south, often resulting in devastating losses to livelihoods and even life itself. In a bid to mitigate the impacts of the climate crisis, communities are constantly forced to adapt to their changing environments.
Anjana, Sreejith and Dipika are from vastly different regions of India, but all have one thing in common: they are having an invaluable impact on the lives of the people they share their communities with and beyond, by communicating and implementing low-cost and low-tech solutions to adapt to this unjust crisis.
Film #1: Mangrove Family – In Kerala, a family continues their father's extraordinary mangrove conservation legacy, resulting in greater protection for coastal communities from extreme weather events.
Film #2: Harvest Mother – In Maharashtra, Anjana dedicates her life to protecting her fellow farmers’ harvests from worsening droughts, with ingenious low-tech adaptation solutions.
Film #3: Climate Guardians – In Gujarat, Dipika travels door to door in her slum settlement to teach others how to be more resilient to the climate crisis, including how to cope with the increasingly brutal heat of the summer months.
The screenings will be followed by an interfaith panel discussion, featuring Vibhati Bhatia, Dr Moiz Bohra, Sunita Ramani and Mike Rumsey
