Stories from Montserrat and St Vincent – Repeating Islands

Researchers from University of Oxford, University of East Anglia, Monsterrat Volcano Observatory, and University of the West Indies invite you to a free film screening, storytelling session, and discussion to take place on November 15, 2023, from 6:30 to 8:30pm at Hackney Picture House (270 Mare Street, London E8 1HE, United Kingdom)

This event is a part of the national “Being Human” festival of the humanities. [The event is free and open to the public; just sign up at “Being Human.”]

Description: This event brings together stories from people who have lived through volcanic crises on the Caribbean islands of Montserrat and St Vincent, shared through film and the spoken word. We will showcase some of the creative outputs from Montserrat and St Vincent which have developed from our collaborative projects, ‘Changing Landscapes’ and ‘Curating Crises’ (https://curatingcrises.omeka.net/)

Join us for three short films from St Vincent (the “Over the River Chronicles”); and a new film (“Roots N’ Stars: Exploring Montserrat’s volcanic legacy, painting the path to tomorrow”). The Vincentian films were created by people from several of the communities most affected by the volcanic eruption of 2021. The new film from Montserrat is by Jerely Browne (attending in person). “Roots N’ Stars” documents the creation of a series of community murals which tell the stories of the recent history of Montserrat, following the volcanic eruptions of 1995-2010. This will be followed by a discussion and storytelling session with Montserratian and Vincentian writers, poets and the filmmakers.
