Free films to make you think!

The Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre is pleased to announce Surry Hills Film Nights: Free Films To Make You Think. This regular film night at Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre (above Surry Hills Library) will be held monthly.

Sara Lubowitz, creative director and instigator of the film nights, says: “The Film Night is about raising issues and bringing them to the neighbourhood. We want people to come along, watch the films, hear from speakers involved in not-for-profit organisations around the world and leave thinking about the connections they themselves have with the global community.”

Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide

7PM, Tuesday April 2

Filmed in 10 countries, Half the Sky confronts oppression and looks at real solutions through health care, education, and economic empowerment for women and girls. This 40-minute documentary series introduces women and girls who are living under some of the most difficult circumstances imaginable – and fighting bravely to change them.

Speaker: Room to Read.

The Clean Bin Project

7PM, Tuesday May 7

Is it possible to live completely waste free? In this multi-award winning film, Jen and Grant go head to head in a competition to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least garbage. Their light-hearted competition is set against a darker examination of the problem of waste as they struggle to find meaning in their minuscule influence on the large-scale environmental impacts of our “throw-away society”.

Speaker: Oz Harvest.
