Ahead of COP26 join us for a screening of Thank you for the rain, a film exploring the effects of climate change by Kisilu Musya, a Kenyan farmer, climate fighter and video diarist, and Julia Dahr, a Norwegian filmmaker and activist.

Over a period of five years Kisilu, a smallholder farmer in Kenya, used his camera to capture his family life, his village and the impacts of climate change. He has filmed floods, droughts and storms - and their human costs. Following a storm that destroys his house, Kisilu starts building a community movement of farmers fighting the impacts of extreme weather and he takes this message of hope all the way to the UN Climate Talks in Paris, COP21 - where he faces inertia, bureaucracy and arrogance. Thrown together with Norwegian filmmaker Julia Dahr, a remarkable film emerges that tells his story of strength, but also of the murky contradictions in the global climate change movement.

Attendance is limited to 40. We'll be serving drinks in the common room after the screening.

We strongly encourage attendees to wear a mask and take a lateral flow test before the event.
