Gentle Start – This Month at The Dragon Café

This Monday from 12 – 8.30 pm at The Dragon Café – WATERFALL – Memory and Landscape on Film
We have an afternoon of art and activity (including making cookies at 2 pm 🙂 ) before a screening of the short film WATERFALL and conversation with Writer/Director Tom Lock Griffiths at 7 pm.  A beautiful film that picked up a best film award at the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival 2017. In Tom’s words:

Waterfall is an essay film about memories of traumatic events and how they can become embedded in the landscape. It is a film about connections and resonances, about how water flows like memory and how memory and grief are always present if not always seen, as though lurking underwater. Starting from the scattering of ashes of a loved one at a Welsh waterfall, the film takes us on a journey inside our most painful thoughts and finally to a place of hope and recovery.

Here’s the trailer to give you a sense of its nature.
