Notes on Blindness (U)

 

A remarkable documentary based on the life of writer and theologian John Hull, who lost his sight in 1983. Brilliantly making use of material from Hull’s audio diaries, it’s a wonderfully imaginative exploration of a condition most of us would hope never to experience, but which – as the film movingly reveals – Hull eventually comes to accept as a unique gift.

Arrival (12)

 

When mysterious alien spacecraft land on Earth, linguistics professor Dr Louise Banks finds herself working with the US army to decode the aliens’ communications. But with government and CIA monitoring operations, will she be able to establish dialogue without unwanted interference?

‘Truly superb’ Sunday Independent

 

 

CLUB HISTORY

From an initial start at the end of September 2012, using a borrowed projector and screen we have now painted the whole end wall of the upstairs room at The Club and with the generous help of the Street Fair Committee been enabled to buy a full HD/1080 Blu-Ray capable LCD projector, our own Blu-ray player, speakers and a small mixing desk.  We have also been kindly given by Air-in-G a huge 8 foot wide transportable screen.  As with the marquees owned by the Street Fair we will make the set up available for use in the village for other fundraising events.  In the last few years since we began showing films we have run a Gaza Benefit evening – which raised over £750,a fundraiser for Ebola victims, given money to the Football Club and Brownies, Girl Guides & Newnham Earlybirds – to mention but a few.
