Help India villagers in Camden Lock

The Indian stars of our 2003 documentary, 'Drowned Out', are shortly going
to be kicked off their land and made destitute. So we're doing a
fundraising screening, followed by a live video link-up to India, where
the villagers will explain exactly what money is needed. From what we can
gather on terrible phonelines, the first priority is a boat and some water
pumps.

It's at the Inspiral Lounge, 250 Camden High St, London, NW1 next Monday,
15th September.

There's delicious organic food available to buy from the cafe from 7pm.
The film will start at 8pm, followed by the live link-up at 9.15pm.
Tickets are ten pounds on the door and, obviously, all profits go to the
villagers. We'll also be trying to harvest more cash afterwards, so please
bring your chequebooks.

Changing the subject, the cunning funding scheme for our new film, The Age
of Stupid, got a plug in Time magazine of all places last week:

Hope to see you there,
