Just a quick reminder email about our Dartmouth Park Film Club screening next Tuesday night. As you probably remember we’ve persuaded acclaimed director and Dartmouth Park local Kevin Macdonald to share one of his lesser known films, How I Live Now. Kevin has 22 directing credits, an Oscar and many other awards to his name. He's best known for directing 'Marley', 'Touching The Void', and 'Last King of Scotland' and - lucky for us - he'll be answering questions after the film.
Please forward this to friends and family you think might be interested as we’re eager to pack it out in support of Kevin and his wonderful work.
Looking ahead, we’ve heard about a 1959 film called SAPPHIRE which we’d like to show as our first film of 2016. The film is all shot in this area, it’s about a murder on Hampstead Heath and it won a BAFTA so it seems perfect. The only snag is we need someone from the film to come and speak after the screening. The director, Basil Dearden, and one of the stars, Nigel Patrick, are sadly no longer alive but we *think* that one of the other main actors is still around so we’re trying to get in touch with him. His name is Michael Craig although he was born Michael Francis Gregson. His wikipedia page is here.
The latest press coverage from 2013 I could find about him said he lives in Monmouthshire in Wales. Does anyone know him? Or know anyone who might know him?
Hopefully see you next Tuesday night!
