Vale? Screening in Wrexham, Wales + theatre and music performances

Please join us for a screening of the documentary Vale? Is It Worth It? Five artists in the front line against Brazil’s worst environmental crime.

Come and see theatre and music performances, watch the film about how Brazil's artists respond to the country's worst environmental disaster, and then join us in a conversation about how Wales and Brazil are connected in social, environmental and industrial crimes. We will then finish the evening with a rowdy crowd sing along to your favourite songs of protest and survival.

Ymunwch â ni ar gyfer dangosiad o'r rhaglen ddogfen Vale? A Yw'n Werth Chweil? Pum artist yn y rheng flaen yn erbyn troseddau amgylcheddol gwaethaf Brasil.

Dewch i weld perfformiadau theatr a cherddoriaeth, gwyliwch y ffilm am sut mae artistiaid Brasil yn ymateb i drychineb amgylcheddol waethaf y wlad, ac yna ymunwch â ni mewn sgwrs am sut mae Cymru a Brasil yn gysylltiedig â throseddau cymdeithasol, amgylcheddol a diwydiannol. Yna byddwn yn gorffen y noson gyda thorf fympwyol yn canu gyda'ch hoff ganeuon o brotestio a goroesi.
