Tawai is a word the nomadic hunter gatherers of Borneo use to describe the connection they feel to their forest home. In this dreamy, philosophical and sociological look at life, Bruce Parry (of the BBC's Tribe, Amazon & Arctic) embarks on an immersive odyssey to explore the different ways that humans relate to nature and how this influences the way we create our societies. From the forests of the Amazon and Borneo to the River Ganges and Isle of Skye, Tawai is a quest for reconnection, providing a powerful voice from the heart of the forest itself.
We are leaving Manchester behind for an evening to visit Glossop for a FREE showing of this excellent film. The venue is Glossop Labour Club, an independent social club, with a very reasonably priced bar, a short walk from the railway station. After the film there'll be time to chat and discuss some of the issues it raises.
If you're coming from Manchester the train at 18:59 from Piccadilly gets you there in plenty of time, whilst the one at 19:29 gets you there with seconds to spare. There are trains back at 22:18 and 22:48.
