Pursued By a Bear and Tiny Dynamite (USA) in association with South Hill Park

The Lamellar Project

Grant Watson

Directed by: Helena Bell

Science fiction meets eco-activism in a gripping story of love and betrayal.

It is the near-future. The eco-system is under attack. Two scientists from either side of the Atlantic are thrown into a new kind of war that threatens to engulf the planet and tear their relationship apart.

Told using film, theatre and a live video link to Philadelphia, USA, this chilling international production explores the most pressing and crucial issues of contemporary global life – the consequences of climate change and the possible ramifications of genetic modification.
