An award-winning movie made by a Kilcreggan-based filmmaker will receive a special free screening later this week.

Tayo Tayo is a 30-minute film made by director, cinematographer, and editor Patrick Chadwick and will be shown at the Cove Park artists' retreat on Peaton Hill on Friday, June 14 at 5pm.

The 2019 film focuses on the climate crisis and has been translated into seven languages and screened at international film festivals, as well as in many community settings across Europe.

Patrick has directed fiction, documentary, and experimental films, and has collaborated with organizations like the BBC, the University of Cambridge, and Historic Environment Scotland. 

A spokesperson for Cove Park said: “The strongest typhoon ever recorded in human history hit the Philippines in 2013, creating a national catastrophe.

“Meanwhile, the world’s governments were gathered in Warsaw for the UN climate conference, where Yeb Saño delivered his emotional speech, calling for an end to climate madness.

“Two years later Yeb left his position as chief climate negotiator for the Philippines and began his work of linking people across the globe by participating in a multi-faith pilgrimage.

“This film follows Yeb and his fellow climate pilgrims on their journey on foot through Europe, as they connect with local people.

“The pilgrimage ends in Paris, where the UN climate conference is taking place.

“The film is a meditative reflection on the power of human connection, and through the film we witness how communities and people of faith are responding to this crisis.”

Tayo Tayo has won the ‘Special Jury Award: Category Ecology’ at the Green Montenegro International Film Festival 2019.

The film was nominated for ‘Best Short Doc / TV Doc’ at the International Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival 2019 and the Official Selection: Mov(i)e Activism International Film Festival in 2019.
