Conference opens on Sunday 3rd June with documentary film screening and director’s Q&A 81 Renshaw St, Liverpool L1 2SJ

The PILAS Committee are excited to announce that the PILAS Annual Conference 2018 will open at 7pm on Sunday 3rd June with a screening of “Where do you draw the line?”, a documentary film that tells the story of an indigenous community in the Ecuadorean Amazon rainforest fighting enforced oil extraction. The film features narration and original music by Grant “Daddy G” Marshall of seminal English trip hop group Massive Attack. The film’s director, Joseph Wordsmith, and producer Cora Fern will also join us for a Q&A after the screening. This event is free to attend for PILAS Annual Conference delegates.
