The Origins of the Apple @ East Oxford Community Centre | England | United Kingdom

A screening of a 2012 film by Catherine Peix, in French with English subtitles.

In the Tian Shan mountains in Kazakhstan is a forest of apple trees, up to 70 feet high, which has been intact for millions of years. Is this the origin of all the world’s apples? Is it perhaps the Garden of Eden?

This film explores the place and the people who saved it led by Aymak Djangaliev’s stand against Stalin’s deforestation. Discover the science that found the genetic link between these apples and all the world’s eating apples.

Doors open 6.30pm for bar and snacks. Film starts 7.15pm, followed by discussion and conversations until 9.30pm.

With 10 different varieties of Oxford apple juice to try, from Tiddly Pommes.
