Culture Unplugged Festival

Anne O’Connell’s film ‘Cliffhanger’ is currently part of the Culture Unplugged film festival, Green Unplugged.

This short documentary asks ‘What would you do if your home was about to fall off a cliff?’  The Norfolk coastline in the UK is under threat from erosion and the government no longer wants to protect it.  This means that whole villages will fall into the sea, with devastating consequences for the people who live there and at great loss to the wider community. Diana Wrightson’s home and café business are about to fall over the cliff in the village of Happisburgh.  She will lose everything she has worked for all her life.  In ‘Cliffhanger’ she tells the story of her fight to save her home and business from destruction.
