On from now till 25th March, Stories That Matter at Objectifs is the perfect one-stop shop you can go to if you’re at all curious about being more conscious of the environment we live in.
While trends may come and go, being environmentally conscious is one trend we hope will continue to gather momentum and traction. No one’s ever said that the fashion set and eco-warriors had to be two mutually exclusive tribes – just look at Beauty and The Beast star Emma Watson, who proves that the two can be intertwined.
Here, we highlight some of the films that will be screening:
#1: Safari by Ulrich Seidl
Yup, you guessed it. Austrian director Ulrich Seidl examines the popular pastime of trophy hunting – that is, the hunting of “prizes” such as lions, elephants and other belaboured animals by wealthy European tourists in Africa. I would say though, that the “sport” is not merely exclusive to European tourists and that’s an unfortunate fact.
24th March, Friday, 7.30pm, Chapel Gallery, entry by donation
#2: Bugs by Andrea Johnsen
Bugs may creep out a lot of people but Danish director Andrea Johnsen is more interested in looking at them in another way: as a potential source of food. In an increasingly overpopulated world with dwindling natural resources, this is a scary scenario we might have to contend with in the future.

Besides the various film screenings, there’s also an ongoing photo exhibition entitled EverydayClimateChange where professional photographers from all over the world contribute photos to a joint Instagram account (@everydayclimatechange).
On from now till 30th April, it’s a fascinating insight into multiple cultures located all over the world and the plights they’re individually facing – and also how certain communities have came up with innovative solutions to their problems.
16th March to 30th April, Courtyard, free admission.
