‘Echo-Maker’ Screening (SAW Event) 7th – 8th October

A film about loss and return in the wetlands of the Somerset Levels and Moors; screened in South-West Heritage Trust’s Romano-British villa reconstruction, set within the archetypal landscape that inspired it…

Sean Harris’ film, projected through layers of gauze within a three-dimensional ‘magic lantern’, explores in mesmerising and meditative fashion a unique and special story of birds and people – and of resilience and hope amidst turbulent times.

Screenings are hourly, the film lasts approximately 45 mins

Drop-in to the Avalon Marshes Centre between 10.30am - 4.30pm daily for hourly viewings of the film. There is limited seating capacity for each screening which will be filled on a first-come-first-serve basis. Walks on nearby Shapwick Heath National Nature Reserve, part of the landscape that inspired the film, are highly recommended while you are in the area. The Romano-British building is located behind the Natural England office at the Avalon Marshes Centre. A Somerset Arts Week (SAW) sign will direct you to its location.
