Purbeck Film Festival Movie Night - 'Blue' plus Food and Refreshments

The Purbeck Film Festival & The Etches Collection Museum of Jurassic Marine Life proudly presents the screening of the environmental documentary, ‘BLUE’.

BLUE (PG)
Director: Karina Holden
Documentary | Australia | 2017 | 1 hr 16 mins
Tickets £12 (includes Chilli & Rice, vegetarian option available) catered by The Salt Pig and entrance to view the stunning Etches Collection museum gallery.

"Nuance and complexity sets Blue the Film apart as an environmental documentary. It resists sugar-coating but communicates hope; it simultaneously privileges the scientific and the romantic, the individual and the collective. The images of the ocean's decay stun us, but so do the many images of its beauty - and these factors become change-making forces in Blue" The Big Issue Magazine.
