Follow up on last movie “Sweet Bean”
A bit late as it is already March, but I was away.
What an great night it was with the added excitement of the fire alarm going off just before. Lucky the fire brigade was attending promptly (2 appliances) and given the all clear to re enter the building just in time for the movie.
The movie itself did not disappoint with every single member I talked to mentioning how much they enjoyed it. Having students from the Port Lincoln High and Muroto Friendship Group attending made it one of our best attended movie night.
They all appreciated the invitation and for some of the students it was a good opportunity to see a Japanese Film before they visit Japan later. We were even treated to some dorayaki’s made by Izumi. They looked exactly like in the movie 🙂
Our next film on the 7th of March is the Australian Drama “Rabbit-Proof Fence” by Director Phillip Noyce
Western Australia, 1931. Government policy includes taking half-caste children from their Aboriginal mothers and sending them a thousand miles away to what amounts to indentured servitude, “to save them from themselves.” Molly, Daisy, and Grace (two sisters and a cousin who are 14, 10, and 8) arrive at Moore River and promptly escape, under Molly’s lead. For days they walk north, following a fence that keeps rabbits from settlements, eluding Moodoo, a tracker (David Gulpilil), and the regional constabulary. Their pursuers take orders from the government’s “chief protector of Aborigines,” A.O. Neville, blinded by Anglo-Christian certainty, evolutionary world view and conventional wisdom. Based on a book written by Molly’s daughter, Doris Pilkington. The world premiere was held in an outdoor screening at Jigalong.
Looking forward to see you all next week Tuesday on the 7th of March
