Private Lives

Directed by Abbe Robinson

Made in 2006 (16 minutes)

Leaving behind the monotony of her textile mill job on a Friday afternoon in the early 50's, Ruth secretly takes a train to Manchester, where she meets a man on the platform. But all is not quite what it seems

 

My Beautiful Laundrette

Directed by Stephen Frears

Made in 1985 (97 minutes)

A witty and intelligent look at race, sexuality, and class in Thatcher's Britain. This tale of a young Asian Londoner determined to make a success out of a run-down laundrette received an Oscar nomination for writer Hanif Kureishi - and deservedly so. Each character is rounded and well-defined, imbued with depth and complexity, and the central gay relationship is (for its time) remarkably free of guilt and not used as an incendiary plot device. Director Frears (Prick Up Your Ears, Dangerous Liasons, The Grifters) renders Kureishi's script with a consistently comic touch. Expertly acted throughout; this remains a definitive snapshot of British life in the 1980s

 Venue: West Green learning Centre, West Green Road, N15 3RB

Events

Date: Weds 9th - Mon 14th Aug
Location: Colesdale Farm, Northaw Road West, Cuffley, Hertfordshire EN6 4QZ  (Trains from Finsbury Park/Hornsey etc)

It's described as: Five days of skill-sharing for grassroots ecological direct action - make links, share ideas, and get involved in the struggles against fracking, new roads and more.

It's organised on non-hierarchical lines and, although I'm sure daytrippers would be welcome, if you can stay over you'll get to appreciate the beauty of the morning meetings, the true pleasure of toilet cleaning by consensus and more.

The workshop programme hasn't been finalised but a list of proposed workshops can be found on the EF!SG website:

http://earthfirstgathering.org/workshops.html

Even if environmental activism isn't your thing, there are a lot of workshops that are relevant to many people in or around HSG, e.g.
- Not seen, not heard: moving about in the dark without being detected. 
- How to do allyship / solidarity activism?
- Seeing beyond the crises: the role of speculative fiction
- Liberating Life: The Kurdish Women's Movement and Women All Around the World
- Ecology and autonomy: an anarchist midwife's view of birth

There is a lot more information on the site about cost, travel directions and accessibility.  So have a look.
