Documentary screening: Island

This film screening will include a Question and Answer session with the director Steven Eastwood

Synopsis: Filmed over 12 months on the Isle of Wight, Island is a life-affirming reflection on the phenomena of dying. It portrays the transition away from person hood and observing the last days, the hours of life and the moment of death. Like the ferries cyclically arriving and departing in this an enigmatic landscape, the film appears buoyant, afloat. Death is shown to be natural and everyday but also unspeakable and strange.
