Dear Vanessa,

Your film made such an impression, your voice is the voice that speaks for humanity – and it will find its home in the hearts of everyone. It deserves the highest place in human achievement, it is art. It’s so good it will make its own way through, rise to the top. Let us know how we can help support its release – Cindy is working on ideas, and will call you.

Meanwhile take heart, we have a campaign to change the Rotten Financial System which is the cause of all our ills. The only way to change it is by switching to a green economy. Our solution is to get ½ the country to switch to a green energy supplier. This is the first step. Yet we think it seems too simple. We think this has the potential to sabotage the Rotten Financial System, change everything and save our world. I was talking to your Emcee who runs Hammersmith council about it, and as you know, Hammersmith is the greenest council in the country.

I talked about this to Jonathan Ross on Radio 2 last week, you can listen to it here:

Love Vivienne


On 3rd October 2016, the Bar Human Rights Committee of England and Wales hosted an exclusive free screening of “Sea Sorrow”, a new film about Europe’s refugee crisis, directed by Vanessa Redgrave.
The screening was followed by a Q&A with Vanessa Redgrave, Lord Alfred Dubs, and Stephen Cragg QC, co-author of BHRC’s recent report on the policing and legal representation within migrant camps in Calais. The discussion was chaired by Kirsty Brimelow QC, Chairwoman of BHRC.
