We are delighted to have the wonderful ambience of Stonehill Barn to offer you a free screening of the film “Demain” (“Tomorrow”) which has already been viewed by over 1.5 million people in France alone. Winner of Best Documentary at the Cesar Awards (the French Oscars), ‘Tomorrow’ was produced by activist and writer Cyril Dion and actress/director Mélanie Laurent. It tells the story of their search for solutions to the crisis humanity faces.

It is a hugely positive, affirming and inspirational film, exploring creative solutions in the fields of food, energy, transport, economics and education.  It visits permaculture farms, urban agriculture projects, community-owned renewable projects, local currencies, creative schools, ambitious recycling projects.  It has been a huge boost to community-led projects, and is currently on release in 29 other countries, regularly receiving standing ovations, and leading to the formation of many new community projects.  It is the perfect antidote to the current sense of global despondency.  It also has a great soundtrack!

The film has been loaned to Oxfordshire CAG by the Transition Network.

Before the film you will have a chance to see what’s been happening just behind the barn at Stonehill Community Gardens, a new project whose aim is to “bring people closer to nature and to share the joys of being outside and gardening together. We hope it will be a place that will be beneficial to all people including those from disadvantaged and/or vulnerable backgrounds.” See the rescue chickens in their lovely home, the home-built pizza oven, the compost toilet, and much much more!
