ICCSR film series plays to sell-out audiences
Our annual Doing the Business Film Series was once again a great success.
This year the series featured two new films about social and ethical issues in business – The True Cost, which focuses on the social and environmental impacts of the global fashion industry, and Ice And The Sky, a survey of the state of Antarctica through the eyes of the French explorer Claude Lorius, made by March of the Penguins director Luc Jacquet.
The films were screened at the independent Broadway Cinema in Nottingham. Prior to the start of The True Cost, Wendy Chapple, Deputy Director of the ICCSR, gave an introduction to the event to a full house. MBA CSR student Liz Corbishley then led a question & answer session with Neil Jones, CSR Manager of the chemist business Boots UK alongside the ICCSR’s Paul Caulfield, Assistant Professor in Responsible & Sustainable Business. The debate included contributions from the audience on the social and environmental implications of the supply chain industry today.
Ice And the Sky, which was also a sell-out, was introduced by Sareh Pouryousefi, Assistant Professor in Business Ethics at the ICCSR, followed by a presentation by Doreen Boyd, Associate Professor and Reader in Earth Observation from the School of Geography, University of Nottingham. After the film screening, staff and students exchanged views with members of the public over refreshments at the Broadway’s Mezz bar.
ICCSR’s Doing the Business film series has run every year at Broadway Cinema since 2004, and features movies that raise business responsibility topics in an imaginative and thought-provoking way. Academic and administrative staff members from across Nottingham University Business School attended the events this year, along with students and alumni from ICCSR undergraduate, MSc, MBA, and PhD programmes.
