Wed 29th November, Depot Cinema, Lewes


Lewes filmmakers, Lily and Pete Sequoia will be hosting a screening of their inspiring documentary, we the uncivilised – A Life Story this month at The Depot, including a Q&A with the filmmakers and special guest panel.

Disillusioned by a story of consumption and alienation, Lewes filmmakers Pete and Lily embarked on a year-long exploration of the UK in search of the seeds of a different story, and with it hope for the future.

We join them on an intimate and life-changing journey as they confront the stark reality of our times, and discover a hidden culture of connection and belonging. The film features conversations with everyday people alongside some of the leading figures of the UK ecological movement, including: Satish Kumar (editor of The Ecologist), Polly Higgins (ecocide lawyer), Bruce Parry (filmmaker),and the late Patrick Whitefield (permaculturist). 

A Life Story is a tale of both deep grief and inspired hope, unearthing the structures that perpetuate ecological destruction, whilst providing a soulful exploration of our humanity and our yearning to live in relationship to one another and the natural world.

Tickets for the screening, plus Q&A and guest panel cost £8 (£4 concessionary, £7.20 members), available from
