Community-produced film added to line-up

Eastleigh Film Festival is delighted to add Theatre for Life's community-made film, Emerge to its lineup for 2021.

Emerge was devised and written by young people from the Southampton area, inspired by real stories from 1912 and 2021 which reflect the tenacity of the human condition both past and present. Modern perspectives are contrasted against a community dealing with the aftermath of the Titanic tragedy. A powerful and honest film, sharing hidden stories and challenging inequalities, helping us to learn from the past to inform our futures.

Throughout the film, Emerge presents a collection of authentic voices which explore the truths behind hidden disabilities, mental health and overcoming adversity.Using headphone verbatim, young theatre makers have collected unique personal stories from within our community, capturing honest, unpredictable and tender testimonies between 2020-2021.

There are a limited amount of FREE outreach tickets for this screening available to schools, colleges and youth organisations. If you are interested in booking as part of our outreach programme - please email Michelle Smith at enquiries@theatreforlife.co.uk

Emerge is a collaborative film with Theatre for Life, Southampton Children’s Hospital and Southampton City Council Cultural Services. For more information, visit theatreforlife.com/emerge
