Bhopali Documentary Screening, Ritzy Picturehouse, Brixton, Sunday 6 March, 2pm
I’m glad to have teamed up with the Bhopal Medical Appeal to bring you a one-off screening of the acclaimed feature documentary ‘Bhopali’ by award winning director Van Maximilian Carlson about the communities surrounding Carbide’s abandoned pesticides factory, site of the infamous 1984 gas disaster in Bhopal, India.
Set against a backdrop of high stakes activism, global politics, human rights advocacy and vehement protests during the 25th anniversary of the tragedy, the film reveals an inspiring community of survivors proving to be anything but victims. Featuring Noam Chomsky, Satinath Sarangi, and attorney Rajan Sharma.
Join us for a special screening followed by a live Q&A and panel discussion. I’ll be joining Tim Edwards, trustee of UK charity the Bhopal Medical Appeal, to discuss the current situation in Bhopal, the fight for justice and my Arts Council England funded project Bhopal: Facing 30 that was recently exhibited at Photofusion Gallery in Brixton, and includes a portrait series of the Bhopal disaster’s resilient survivors.
