We had a really successful screening in Bristol at the Steiner Academy, which is in a beautiful building called St. Matthias. The theatre was spacious and it was very exciting for me to see the film on a big screen!

After the film, we had a fascinating discussion with Wendy Ellyat and Agnes Javor from the More than a Score Campaign in Bristol and Bath. We posted a Facebook Live video here of the discussion after. We found out later that we needed to record portrait – so hope you don’t get a sore neck watching this!

The highlights for me were the coming together of people in the audience that work in all areas of education, and how in this, people are united in trying to make a better world for children.

And it is really serious as children’s lives are worth so much more than a bad governmental decision about how to evaluate schools…

I’m looking forward to taking the film around to other venues and talking to more people. Although I am just a filmmaker…and the real changes need to happen politically…

There is a Screening being organised for Freedom to Learn next week in Bristol. I am hoping that lots of people come and we have an interesting chat after. It’s always my favourite part of a screening. Usually I am sitting and squirming during the film, but love people’s reactions after!!

Come down if you are in Bristol or Bath.

We have invited the More than a Score and Let Kids be Kids local groups, who I hope are coming, which is great news, as I would love the film to help get behind their campaigns…

So it’s World Breastfeeding Week, and by chance I happened to take my LO’s to see the dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum and we then popped over to the V&A to paddle in their lovely courtyard. On our way into the V&A there was this statue that seemed (there was one at the top and one at the bottom) to show us the way we could go using the ramps – we had buggies and slings on!  Nicely timed I thought. Its made by a french artist called Jules Dalou in around 1873…long time ago. I wish i could breastfeed this confidently in public!!

Anyway Babyhood is also showing as part of the Breastfeeding Festival on the 11th August. If you are in the area! Hope to write a bit more soon, but don’t seem to get more than a minute to myself these days!

If you live in London, come along to this screening and Q&A on 25th July 2012

Hope to see you there!
