What's on this week
Free Film Night: Documentary: Surviving Progress, 8pm, Chalfont St Peter Parish Church Hall, Church Lane, Chalfont St Peter. Surviving Progress presents the story of human advancement as awe-inspiring and double-edged. It reveals the grave risk of running the 21st century’s software - our know-how - on the ancient hardware of our primate brain which hasn’t been upgraded in 50,000 years. With rich imagery and immersive soundtrack, Surviving Progress launches us on a journey to contemplate our evolution from cave-dwellers to space explorers. The film leaves us with a challenge: To prove that making apes smarter was not an evolutionary dead-end. Presented by Change4Chalfont, a group of people who live in and around Chalfont St Peter, who want to take action to combat climate change. Change4Chalfont is part of the Transition Movement. Free entry. Call 01753 893069. Donations welcome.
