Dr Kate Adams and Alkis Papastathopoulos: “One of the problems we have in our relationship with nature is that we quite often separate out scientific enquiry from our emotional relationship with the world.”
One Day We Will Dance With You directed by Alkis Papastathopoulos
One Day We Will Dance with You tells the story of two women creating a dance to celebrate water. They imagine dance moves, and argue about science and whether a celebration can still be sad. As the community around them comes together to dance, they begin to imagine a future where the Water Molecule Dance and the celebration of water becomes a part of all our lives.
Earthfile – Elephant Protection directed by Ayoola Afolakemi Kassim
In recent years there have been many reports of hunters killing elephants across the country. A combination of climate change (which has reduced amounts of fresh water the elephants need), poaching, human-elephant conflict and deforestation is a major challenge.
Earthfile focuses on the current problem climate change has caused for the elephants, in terms of habitat loss and the cause of the human-elephant conflicts in Nigeria.
It also looks at the efforts of conservationists (trained professionals and those without formal education) in the protection of the elephant population. It talks about their successes and failure, and how humans can live in harmony with the elephants.
