Film Screening – The River Project: Categories of Life and Death

26-11-18 18:00 - 19:30
Wardsend Cemetery
Address: 1A Club Mill Rd, Sheffield S6 2FH, UK

Join DCRT and Site Gallery for a special outdoor screening of our final Living Heritage of the River Don youth art project – The River Project: Categories of Life and Death in Wardsend Cemetery. Shot on location in the cemetery and the neighbouring River Don, the film imagines a meeting of the Celtic goddess Danu and a creature of her making. Devised by students from Sheffield College in collaboration with Eelyn Lee, the film touches on themes of pollution and renewal.

The film forms part of The River Project exhibition, displayed in the Site Gallery Project Space 22 – 29 November 2018.

The 5-minute film will play on a loop and free soup will be served, so drop in at any point.

An exhibition charting the process of The River Project will be on display in Sheffield College from 5.30pm.

    Walk the story of the River Don with Don Catchment Rivers Trust founder Chris Firth, MBE. During this circular walk along the riverside, Chris will take us on a historical tour of the River Don, explaining how organisations have worked together to restore a once-broken river. Discover how industry polluted, chopped-up and changed the river, blocking the path of migratory fish, such as the incredible Atlantic Salmon. Observe the crimpsall sluice rock ramp, especially designed to re-connect our fragmented river and help bring back the incredible Atlantic Salmon to the river Don.
