Follow up on last movie “Goodbye, Lenin ”
Good attendance again this month with 17 members 3 guests and we also signed up one new member, welcome!!!
This film was another success and most members I talked to enjoyed the movie, only one member mentioned not liking it at all.
I had seen the film before and again enjoyed it, particularly having been to Berlin and also some of my good friends escaped East Berlin during the communist rule.
I thought it has real historical value as to what life was really like in the East before the fall of the wall.
Our next film on the1st of may is the 2012 Documentary from New Zealand
“How Far is Heaven!” directed by M.Smith and C.Pryor
The Sisters of Compassion have lived in the remote village of Jerusalem/Hiruharama on the Whanganui River in New Zealand for 120 years. Today, only 3 nuns remain – their legacy on the river is coming to an end. This is a complex world of Maori and Christian spirituality, parties and prayers, pig hunting and perfume appreciation.
The film follows the newest sister over the course of a year. Through an intimate, observational approach, the film is a captivating portrait of the personalities of the local kids. Throughout all seasons, the Sisters’ daily practice of compassion engages with the traditions of local Maori. Together they learn to navigate life’s heartbreak and joy.
Filmmakers Miriam Smith and Christopher Pryor lived and filmed in Jerusalem for a year, gaining privileged insight into this special world.
Looking forward to see you all on Tuesday the 1st of May, it is also our AGM so hopefully you can all make it.
