"Last month saw the synchronised previewing of the new film ‘In Transition 2.0’ screeings in communities around the world. It was shown in Lewes Town Hall, The Dukes in Lancaster, at the Watershed in Slaithwaite, the town building in Wayland, US, in the office of Project Lyttelton in New Zealand, in the fire station in Moss Side, a front room in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania, US, a Hindu temple in Tooting, a school in Finsbury Park, a hall in Tokyo, Japan, in ‘Cinema Paradiso’ in Auroville, India and in a village in Portugal. Only one screening was cancelled, in Monteveglio in Italy, where -15° temperatures and snow storms forced them to postpone," writes Rob Hopkins reporting on Transition Culture from at the Barn Cinema in Dartington, where 200 people were celebrating the birth of the film.
The documentary will have its official premiere on 24 March at The Guardian Open Weekend in London and we're hoping to show this inspiring new telling of the Transition story in Norwich soon. Meanwhile, here is the film's trailer, directed by Caspar Walsh to whet your appetite!
