Wild Tales (15) - West Side Cinema Screening @ Stromness Town Hall  | Stromness | United Kingdom
Wickedly hilarious and delightfully deranged, Wild Tales is a subversive satire that doubles as a uniformly entertaining anthology film. Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover’s betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control.

Open rituals at Brodgar - Lammas @ Ring of Brodgar | United Kingdom
Our ritual is based on those provided by the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, but the wording is inclusive and designed to be accessible for people of all religions / beliefs and none. Lammas marks the beginning of harvest, a time of joy but also a time to prepare for the coming of autumn and its longer nights and colder temperatures. This is the time of the year when we start to reap what we have sown; as the cereals crops start to be harvested, likewise we acknowledge where we have sown good seeds in our own lives or in the lives of others. We welcome everyone who wishes to attend.  There is no charge and we ask only that you bring your open mind and warm heart.  We ask that any minors (under 18) attend only with a parent or guardian please.  We meet at the southern entrance to the Ring of Brodgar and we are quite obvious!  As a Bardic ritual, we invite participants to join in, perhaps by taking a speaking part, or bringing a reading or piece of music to share.  Join in as much as you are comfortable with – if you only wish[...]
