Green on the Screen May - Once Upon a Time in Knoxville
Green on the Screen presents
Once Upon a Time in Knoxville
Wednesday 4 May, 7pm (Film starts 8pm)
Moors Bar, 57 Park Rd, Crouch End
We do hope to see you at May's Green on the Screen. It should be a good one this month - with local film director Will Fraser presenting his film about recycling guru, Rollo Sullivan, who builds with 'found' recycled materials. Plus the usual combination of delicious seasonal food, stimulating post-film conversation and friendly faces.
Once Upon a Time in Knoxville uplifts us with the tale of recycling visionary Rollo Sullivan.
Rollo hits us with a vision of the resources collapse that awaits us. But where other eco-warriors preach and bore, Rollo revives us with a tableau of fainting goats, talking monkeys and spiritual trash dumps. He’s created a paradise out of garbage, and he wants to show us not just how we can live, but how we will be living in the not too distant future. He shows us his brave new world with great humour, but his clear-thinking foresight will stay with you long after the lights have come up.
"A wonderful documentary on this bio man's mad paradise, brilliantly made and slightly terrifying." Jake Harders
"A very interesting film, provocative and sometimes startling." Jack Neely, Metropulse
