Film night: Even Though the World is Burning
Even though the World is Burning is a biography of W. S. Merwin, the poet laureate and two-time Pulitzer winner and environmental activist. As well as being a practising Buddhist and prolific poet Merwin was also very concerned about the world. From the late 1970’s he lived on an old plantation in Hawaii which he and his wife painstakingly restored to its original state. An inspiring and entertaining film including interviews with Harold Bloom and Naomi Shihab Nye. Merwin died at the age of 91 last year.

The film will start at 7pm. If you want, you can join us for dinner from 6pm (please bring a vegan dish to share).
Film nights, like much of the rest of Cardiff Buddhist Centre, can take place because of the generosity of people who come along.
If you can, please pay what you feel it is worth to you — we suggest £5.
We hope to see you there.
