It’s been a very busy two weeks: the new documentary 97% Owned has been viewed over 65,000 times in 14 days. Below is an invitation to a very special cast-and-crew screening (with only 40 seats available) on June 26th, and there are screenings and meetups in Sheffield, Bristol, Powys and North Yorkshire.
1) June 26th: 97% Owned – An Evening with Cast and Crew
You’re invited to a special “Cast and Crew” screening of “97% Owned”documentary in London, 26th June. This is a chance to spend an evening with the Producers & Interviewees. Producer Mike Horwarth and interviewees Ben Dyson, Josh Ryan-Collins and Simon Dixon are confirmed, with more to follow. There are only 40 seats available and the first 20 are discounted, so you’ll need to book early.
There’ll be a cash bar and we’ll hang around for the evening to discuss and debate the issues.
2) See 97% Owned – Online or at a Screening
Subtitles: The film has already Greek, Spanish, French, Lithuanian and Indonesian subtitles thanks to the excellent work of our volunteers. People in Greece and Spain in particular now need to see it – let’s spread it far and wide! Translations into 10 other languages are in progress now.
