Blueberry Soup: How Iceland changed how we think about the world

Date/Time: Wednesday 10 January, 2018 - 4:00pm

Venue: Park Building 3.01

What if a country rewrote its constitution using ordinary citizens and social media? That’s exactly what happened in Iceland. Blueberry Soup is an extraordinary documentary at the epicentre of one of this century’s most exciting movements: “The Icelandic People’s Movement”. The film is a deeply touching account of an empowered nation re-envisioning democracy through the drafting of its constitution. If given a second chance, how does a nation rebuild?

The Citizenship ‘Race’ and Belonging (CRaB) Resarch network will be hosting the film’s director Eileen Jerrett for a screening and discussion of her film Blueberry Soup.

This event is free to attend. It will take place on Wednesday 10 January at 4.00pm in Park 3.01. Hot drinks and biscuits will be provided.
