Bar open 1pm til 8pm
We are pleased to announce the revival of Deptford Cinema’s Film and Book Club in 2023!
Film: An Angel at my Table, dir. Jane Campion. Again, you can view the film on Mubi. It was originally made as a TV series with three episodes so can be watched in three sittings.
Book: Faces in the Water by Janet Frame. The film is Campion’s adaptation of Frame’s autobiographical trilogy, which you are welcome to read but I thought it would be interesting to read an example of her fiction, and her novel, Faces in the Water, set in a mental institution, is based on some of her experiences we see in the film. I’m a big fan of her short stories too - if anyone wants to read more of her fiction, I recommend The Daylight and the Dust collection.
Drinks and snacks can be purchased from the bar.
A big thank you to Music Room London for hosting this and forthcoming Film and Book Club events!
We welcome all to our friendly meet up.
Please let us know if you have any access needs in advance. Thank you.
