Event description

Description

Screening Andrew Garton's first feature documentary Ocean in a Drop - broadband impacts on rural India.

India’s invisible majority are poor yet literate in their own traditions and increasingly online. Ocean in a Drop is a film about these emergent online populations told by rural women and children, artisans and entrepreneurs. Shot in fourteen villages throughout nine districts across Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar.

Opening the evening is Wind & Sky's award-winning short Seeing the Land from an Aboriginal Canoe.

This is a special screening co-hosted by A Local Baker, St Andrew's own sourdough, wood-fired bakery. Sachin will cater for the screening with his sumptuous offerings including a chai tea drawn from his Indian culinary origins.

All proceeds from ticket sales, food, chai and wine will go towards the completion of Andrew's next film, Forged from Fire - the making of the Blacksmiths Tree.

This screening event is supported by the St Andrews Film Society and Wadambuk St Andrews Community Centre.
