“This film has hugely moved and inspired me. I feel it contains the seeds of inspiration that will travel, root down and flourish, bringing regeneration to barren parts of our contemporary culture, and perpetuating a growing momentum of hope and change in the lives of many.” Riga Forbes www.rigaforbes.co.uk

Response from Film Maker, Ben Cole
I saw an early screening of this touching documentary last week and was deeply moved. These first time film makers have taken a huge risk by driving around the UK with a camera and investigating how to live a sustainable life that has integrity in its core. Their risk has paid off. What results is … Continue reading Response from Film Maker, Ben Cole
We need folk proficient in grief!
“We need folk proficient in grief! This was the line that most spoke to my heart, as I watched last night’s showing of the amazing movie “We The Uncivilised” at the community-saved library in New Cross.

Thank you for the Screening at New Cross Learning Centre
Hi Lily and Pete We think we will mark the screening of ‘wetheuncivilised’ as another of those magical moments in the history of the library. Thank you so much for that and thank you for sharing the profits, although the spiritual reception far outweighed the financial but isn’t that just the message of the film! … Continue reading Thank you for the Screening at New Cross Learning Centre

For me, it was the … Continue reading a response to my viewing of wetheuncivilised, A Life Story

We are part of the lucky ones having jobs, with an income that can reasonably support a family. But in 2012 we felt compelled to bet on the pursuit … Continue reading News from Spain: What inspired our family to look for a different world to live in…
Dear Lily and Pete and the rest of your crew I saw your film at Buddhafield. I knew I needed something, something to confirm that my practice of witnessing the pain of the Earth in these transitional times is possible when balanced with a witnessing of the myriad mosaic of small and beautiful creative acts … Continue reading Buddhafield screening
I was touched a lot throughout – yet on this first viewing was with how I was involved in the problem and the grief of that, knowing no matter I do I cannot be totally clean. Waves of grief moved through me, someone wanted to make me feel better and I restarted to resent them … Continue reading Film response
Keeping our hearts open after the credits have rolled
Within minutes of the start of the film my eyes were moist and they stayed that way for pretty much the entire film. I think this was partly to do with the fact that I feel as though, on some small level, I’m part of the story of the making of the film and so … Continue reading Keeping our hearts open after the credits have rolled
