‘Not Ok’ film screening - a little movie about a small glacier at the end of the world

Published: 5 February 2020

Join anthropologists Cymene Howe and Dominic Boyer at the UK premier of their documentary 'Not Ok'. Not Ok tells the story of Okjökull (Ok glacier), a story that impacts every living being on the planet. Screening followed by Q&A. February, 5pm-7pm, Gilmorehill Cinema. All welcome. No booking required.


Glaciers have been distinctive features of the Icelandic landscape ever since human settlement on the island 1200 years ago. But since the early 20th century Iceland’s 400+ glaciers have been melting steadily, now losing roughly 11 billion tons of ice every year; scientists predict that all of Iceland’s glaciers will be gone by 2200.

One of Iceland’s smallest known glaciers is named “Ok.” Not Ok is its story. This is not a tale of spectacular, collapsing ice. Instead, it is a little film about a small glacier on a low mountain - a mountain who has been observing humans for a long time and has a few things to say to us.

This event will take place on Friday 7 February, 5pm-7pm at Gilmorehill Cinema, 9-11 University Avenue, G12 8QQ. All welcome. No booking required – just drop in.
