Green on The Screen 12 January 2016: The Lottery of Birth

what-have-you-been-shaped-to-believe

 

 

As the title suggests, our arrival in the world is a lottery that can shape not just our life chances, but also our outlook and capabilities, and can instil either hope or hopelessness, power or fear. This acclaimed documentary involves leading writers, thinkers, activists, academics and film-makers to consider how the worlds we happen to be born into shape our potential both to adapt to a changing world — and to change it. Join us to watch on Tuesday 12 January, 7pm at Nanna’s café (http://www.nannasn1.com/), doors open early, bar and refreshments, admission free (donations towards screening fees welcome).
