Reel to Real Cinema x The Stove Cafe Present: Right of Way

February 10 @ 7:00 pm 10:00 pm

We’re told we all have a right to roam in the countryside – but does that apply to everyone equally?Right of Way is a new feature-length programme that mixes stunning new artists’ commissions with historical archive films that give a bigger picture of questions of access and inclusion in the UK countryside. This programme is presented by the Independent Cinema Office and LUX and supported by the BFI Film Audience Network and Arts Council England.  

About the Films

Right of Way | 2022 | Dir: various | UK | 90 mins

The new commissions interrupt and challenge the enduring perception of the rural idyll as an untouched and unchanging space where time stands still. What happens when Black, Asian and other ethnically diverse people enter these landscapes? How can our natural spaces be homes to protest, trespassing, activism and raves? Paired with archive films that show that the life of the countryside contains multitudes and disrupt simple narratives, this programme is a terrific platform for debate on historical and contemporary discussions about who has a right to the great outdoors and who is excluded from it.
