Bring your favourite potluck dish, make new friends as we share a meal and conversation and then stay for a great movie time together. Simple time together of human connection in a seemingly more and more disconnected world. These evenings are truly a delight. See you on Saturday June 29th in the church's lower hall.
Our movie choices over this summer are taken from the 'remarkable true-stories' catalogue: in this case 'Frozen Time: the story of Dawson City'. Truly remarkable narrative portrayal, produced in 2016, using masses of photos & film found frozen in perma-frost under the city-hall.
"This movie was truly haunting. The music made it so powerful. Triggers endless thoughts of mortality, loss... Quite profound. The people in these movies were one lucky dig away from being lost forever. I honestly did not realize this was also a silent movie."
"I saw 'Dawson City' on TCM two nights ago and will obtain the DVD ASAP - brilliant and moving . . . The nitrates films speak for itself to tell us about a world we nearly lost - incredible. Don't focus on the town or the 'narrative', interesting as they are, just more about the lost film images, we see before us our world of a century ago."
"Watching these amazing pieces of art and culture being reborn... Thank you again and again and again!"
