Dear DPFC People.
At last the Dartmouth Park Film Club is back. We tried to do it a year ago but Covid conspired against us. This time we're confident we can make the date: Wednesday 4th May.
It will be an evening with multi award-winning, constantly critically acclaimed Dartmouth Park documentary maker Vanessa Engle. She made films about - among others - Ray Davies of the Kinks, Mervyn Peake and Sarah Lucas - and that was all before she started to get to grips with films which - in her words - "explore our fundamental values and belief systems": feminism, left wing politics, Anglo-Jewry, money, health, all got in her sights. And during lockdown she completed The Unbelievable Story of Carl Beech, which told the jaw-dropping story of a man who claimed to have been the victim of a high-profile paedophile ring. We'll show clips from Vanessa's films and hear from her about her career as a documentary filmmaker.
People pay good money to come and spend an evening with a filmmaker like this and see some of her work. But, as you know, at DPFC, you pay what you think it is worth and you get a glass of wine - the quality of which has only improved over the lockdown. All profits from the event will support the DEC’s Ukraine Humanitarian appeal.
