8th June 2015, 17:30 to 19:00, Senior Common Room, Josephine Butler College, Raihana Ferdous

Off the Grid is a documentary set in Sandwip where there is no electricity. Solar energy arrives to homes on this remote island in Bangladesh. Guided by a young solar engineer, we enter the lives of those who remain here-women and children- whose fathers and husbands continue to migrate to work jobs where industrial electricity exists.

There will be a drinks reception in the SCR from 17.30.

Here is the trailer of the film
