Treat your Mum to one or both of a fantastic double bill for Mother's Day
I Am A Camera and The Loves of Joanna Godden screen on Mother’s Day, 15th March 2015.
3pm – Our Book To Film Club's new season starts with I Am A Camera, based on the Christopher Isherwood stories, which would later inspire ‘Cabaret.’ It's Berlin, the 1930s. A young English writer arrives in the city, sharing a flat with vivacious nightclub singer Sally Bowles. Together they experience the mad swirl of bohemian life, but as the Swastika becomes an omnipresent symbol throughout the city, it becomes apparent that there are dark days ahead. Get reading!The event will be hosted by writer and lecturer Dr. Shannon Smith. Your suggestions for films to show as part of the club are also very welcome, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas.
NB - Book to Film Club is now on Sunday afternoons with coffee and cake included in the ticket price.
8pm - The Loves of Joanna Godden stars Googie Withers playing a young woman who flouts convention (pictured, right). Joanna Godden’s father dies and bequeathes her a large farm in Romney Marsh, Kent. Beautiful, impetuous, self-willed, Joanna is determined to defy convention and – as a mere woman - run the farm herself. Her decision outraged the whole shire, not least her farmer neighbour Arthur Alce.
Filmed around Dungeness and Romney Marsh, it is remarkable to see such familiar locations filmed back in 1947.
