Host Your Own Can I Live? Screening
Are you part of a community or youth group who would like to gain more understanding of the climate crisis? Or a grassroots activist group who needs an injection of new inspiration? Complicité, alongside the Doc Society, still has a limited number of micro-bursaries available to set up your own screening of Can I Live?
Created with world-renowned theatre company Complicité, Can I Live? is the story of how, as a part of the Global Majority, actor Fehinti Balogun’s path has been forever changed by what he’s learnt about our planet. This energising and uplifting film is an exploration of the place where the climate emergency and social justice meet, and a call-to-action to anyone who is curious about what we can do to help.
We’re offering participating groups grants of £500 to host a film screening – to use as you like. Maybe you’ll gather around food to discuss what you’ve seen, or throw an open mic with your own responses to the issues. It could be that it fits into workshops and events you already have planned, or that you throw a special party for the occasion. We’re open to ideas and the more creative the better!
We’ll also provide support including a toolkit to help with planning the event, a bike-powered screen where needed, guest speakers and the support of a dedicated project manager.
If you’d like to get involved, please send us a paragraph or two on who your group is and why you’d like to screen the film, along with any initial ideas you have for the screening. Alternatively feel free to send a short video message if easier for you. This is a light touch process and we don’t expect your response to be polished. If you have any questions, please contact Josie on firstname.lastname@example.org
