Right of Way (12a)
The Maltings, Berwick | 11 September  | 14.30


We’re told we all have a right to roam in the countryside – but does that apply to everyone equally?


Right of Way, is a special preview screening presented by Independent Cinema Office and LUX Moving Image. It mixes stunning new artists’ films with historic travelogues and asks questions of access and inclusion in the UK countryside.

Marking the beginning of a new season at Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, filmmaker Dan Guthrie will join us at the Maltings to introduce his new film black strangers.

In the spirit of Right of Way, there is an optional short post-screening walk, culminating at the pier in Berwick and a visit to Chloë Smith’s Installation This Endless Sea.
