Hard Rain

Film & Lecture by Mark Edwards

Hard Rain is a collaborative work between Bob Dylan and Mark Edwards. it is a witness report thirty years in the making. The film opens with Bob Dylan's poetic Masterpiece "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall", synced to photographic images from around the world. Dylan sets the scene for a moving and unforgettable exploration of the state of our planet at this critical time. Meet the people at the sharp end of the environmental debate in squatter cities, villages, jungles and desserts across Africa, Asia and South America then look at the modern world with new eyes; both the extraordinary achievements and the crisis we face as our goals become inflated - as modernity became the sign of conquest, exploitation, overconsumption and the destruction of the earth.

Mark Edwards is one of the few environmantal communicators to have personally witnessed the global issues that are defining the 21st century. Assignments for magazines, NGOs and United Nations agencies have taken him to over 150 countries. One of the most widely published photographers in the world, his pictures are in many international museums and private collections and have been exhibited in galleries in Europe and the US.
