WHAT’S ON?

We are offering families a special and unique opportunity to watch ‘So What Can You Eat?’ together with us, followed by a LIVE Q&A session with Creator & Director Jack Everitt and fellow co-stars! NOT TO BE MISSED!

So What Can You Eat? is a documentary film examining the world’s growing obsession with food and the freedoms it brings from the perspective of those who don’t have the choice.
The relationship we have with food extends far beyond its impact on our physical health or personal satisfaction. Underpinning every decision we make surrounding food lies a primal right to choice, and across all cultures around the world, food, and the ritual of eating, is directly used as a means of bringing communities together.
Presented by filmmaker Jack Everitt, So What Can You Eat? examines the stories of the rare individuals who follow one of the world’s most restrictive diets in a lifelong battle to avoid severe and irreversible brain damage. In doing so he tasks his close-friend, and fellow filmmaker, Liberty Hanson, with trialing the diet for 1 whole month. Through Liberty’s struggles we discover what it really means to have freedom of choice, and how recognising these freedoms can empower us to take complete control of our health and mental wellbeing.

Jack then went on to work on to work on various projects, directing a number of short films and as cinematographer for the action feature ‘English Dogs in Bangkok’, starring Byron Gibson and Ron Smoorenberg. In 2021 Jack released the feature length documentary ‘So What Can You Eat?’ to shed light on the rare genetic condition condition, PKU, which picked up an International award for Unforgettable Film at the Spotlght Documentary Film Festival.
