3 Elements of Difference Disability-led Creative Movement

3 Elements of Difference is a Disability-led experimental dance practice exploring improvised creative movement through sensation and imagery with disabled and non-disabled people.

Through a series of different tasks the sessions give time to explore the sensation of moving, how it feels… dropping any need to move in a particular way.

The 3 Elements are:

How we feel, giving time to connect to our own bodies; How we observe and witness others’ creative movements; How we connect and move with each other.

The 3 elements are not designed to push our bodies, rather the session will give time to notice and become interested in our different ways of moving, to explore meditative movement which feel creative.

Accessibility is key to our sessions. Exploring differences is our priority. We actively welcome opening up what accessibility is, for all people to feel and move creatively.

Alan Ereira ALUNA - screening and talk

Director/Producer Alan Ereira presents and talks about ALUNA , the follow up to his 1990 film The Heart Of The World.

Alan Ereira’s influential film From The Heart Of The World: The Elder Brothers’ Warning, brought global attention to the Kogi people of Colombia, an ancient South American civilisation who once traded with the Mayans and Aztecs but survived the Spanish conquest by retreating into the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.

Having remained hidden for centuries, the Kogi surfaced in Ereira’s original 1990 film with an environmental message that was ahead of its time, a warning that we, their ‘younger brother', were destroying the ecosystem by plundering the earth.

Now, two decades later, glacial melt, ferocious storms, landslides, floods, droughts and deforestation show that their message has gone unheeded. The Kogi elders or ‘Mamas’ receive training to connect with “Aluna”, the mind inside nature and set out to show us that we do not understand nature as a connected whole. Profoundly frightened, the next generation of Kogi take Ereira on a journey to demonstrate to him and our scientists that the world is a single organism, tracing the invisible connections with 400 kilometres of gold thread.

Filmed over three years, this ambitious feature length documentary initiated by the Kogi, with footage filmed by them, is the authentic voice of an indigenous people trying to help us.

Glasgow Refugee Asylum and Migration Network / BEMIS Destierros

Viscerally immersed in the experience of Central American migrants on their perilous route to the United States, Destierros provides a sobering account of the desperation, perseverance, and humanity of people fleeing violence with a last hope for a better life.

Leading up to the 2016 US elections, migrants are aware of what may be their last chance to cross the border. Using pure cinematic means, this crucial documentary captures the life-threatening experience of illegal migration. Alternating between visceral sensory sequences and revealing testimonials, the camera is an active observer that bears witness to the violent intensity of uncertain exile, and immortalises the heartbreaking stories of men and women haunted by the past and clinging to their last rays of hope.

The goal is well known – to get into the north of the continent at all costs. But whether dangerously hanging onto trains, avoiding the gangs that prey on the long path to exile, or going days without food or water, the journey is mostly a matter of staying alive. Destierros breathes the urgency of their situation, and contributes to our understanding of the relations of power exercised over migrants and between them.

UK Jewish Film Festival The Unorthodox

When Yakov Cohen’s daughter is expelled from school because of her ethnicity, the widowed father decides to fight back.

Despite having no political experience, he forms Shas, a new party whose aim is to cater for the needs of the disenfranchised Sephardi ultra-Orthodox community in Israel. It’s 1983, the Ashkenazi establishment rules everything and Cohen’s efforts seem quixotic. But he perseveres, and by doing so, changes the political landscape in Israel forever.

Inspired by real events, The Unorthodox is a highly entertaining – and enlightening – tale about the beginnings of a political revolution.
