Can I Live? | Dir Daniel Bailey | Conceived, written and performed by Fehinti Balogun | 2021 | 1h | United Kingdom | Documentary | English | PG
In partnership with 99p Films Presents Why don’t we talk about it? asks this urgent question and offers an invitation in Can I Live?, a vital new digital performance about the climate catastrophe, sharing his personal journey into the biggest challenge of our times. Weaving his story with spoken word, rap, theatre, animation and the scientific facts, Fehinti charts a course through the fundamental issues underpinning the emergency, identifying the intimate relationship between the environmental crisis & the global struggle for social justice, and sharing how, as a young Black British man, he has found his place in the climate movement.
In the face of a sense of helplessness about the climate catastrophe, Can I Live? is an outstretched hand, inviting audiences to recognise they are not alone – and that through understanding the issues and connecting with the many powerful activists around the globe driving change, we can find a sense of hope for the future.
99p films create transformative film experiences, incorporating mindfulness, and discussion, a communal feast and film screenings. Connecting people and raising awareness about social and environmental issues that can inspire action for a better future.
