Event Description

A friend of mine supports the campaign to stop Brent from closing local libraries. I'll be there and it would be great to meet afterwards for a drink. Let me know if you plan to come and we can wear distinctive clothing, or something. Screening of the film Cruel Separation . 7pm for 7.45pm. Tickets £10 [£8 concessions].

 The story of General Pinochet's American backed military coup in Chile in1973, told through the eyes of four women who lived through it. Angela Jeria de Bachelet - wife of an air force general loyal to Allende, experienced the brutality of the military first hand being held in the Villa Grimadi with her daughter Michelle Bachelet (who assumed as the Chilean President in 2006); Joyce Horman, whose story was made internationally famous in Costa-Gavras Oscar-winning film "Missing"; Hortensia Bussi de Allende - wife of deposed President Salvador Allende; Joan Jara English wife of Chilean political singer songwriter, Victor Jara. Narrated by Donald Sutherland, the film covers the coup from different perspectives and how the four women survived, picked up their lives afterwards and carried on in exile and back in Chile, to tell their stories of love and loss. There will be a Q & A session with the director, Sarah Boston. This film has won the International Documentary Award 2006 (Vina del Mar Film Festival Chile) and the Melhor Longa Documentario  (Cinesul 2007 Brazil) Refreshments available from 7pm. Film screening at 7.45pm.
 
Tickets can be ordered  for collection on the night from Samantha Warrington, samantha.warrington@gmail.com

OK, I hope you come and enjoy the film.
