Unearthed – Film screening and talk at Farnham Eco Cinema

Join artist Amanda Loomes for a fascinating insight into Surrey's sand pits, their history and people.

Persistent Place and Whole are two experimental art documentaries that unearth the endeavours of the people who work in the sandpits of the Surrey Hills.

Persistent Place weaves together generations of work at North Park Quarry, including the Mesolithic hunters who struck flints here, the archaeologists who painstakingly document them and the commitment of the machine operators who move the sand.

Whole reflects the repetitive processes of sand extraction to draw attention to the pride and beauty within the industrial workplace at Moorhouse Sandpits. Touching on our own relationship to the extracted material, Whole considers the imaginative potential of this site.

The evening starts with a short meal. All are invited to bring contributions of food and drink. Film screening at 8pm followed by discussion and pudding.

This talk is free and open to all. A voluntary contribution will help keep the Eco-Cinema going.
