Inspired by best-selling book The Spirit Level, Katharine Round’s film highlights the widening gulf between rich and poor.
FILMS FOR FOOD INITIATIVE: Just in the last year there has been a 51% rise in people using food banks across the UK. It is in response to this that the Rainbow Collective chose to set up “Films for Food”: a scheme which will give film lovers a chance to help their local community by bringing along a bag of non-perishable food items to donate to their local food bank.
Following the screening there will be a panel discussion with the filmmaker Katharine Round, Denise Bentley (CEO First Love Foundation – Tower Hamlets Food Bank), Patrick Butler (Social policy editor – Head of Society, Health and Education at the Guardian) and a Food Bank User.
Screening in partnership with the Rainbow Collective, The Yard and First Love Foundation (Tower Hamlets Food Bank).
FREE for a bag of non-perishable food. BOOK HERE.
