ORDINARY PEOPLE
EXTRAORDINARY STORIES

Join us at the Regent Cinema on Friday 10th November at 7pm for our fundraising night featuring two inspiring documentaries.

A light supper will be offered after the films and an opportunity to hear from the local filmmakers and to view an exhibition of artworks by local artist Heather McClelland.

Cast from the Storm

‘Cast from the Storm’ tells the tender story of a group of teenage refugees who share their extraordinary stories when they join Treehouse Theatre, an after-school theatre group. This isn’t your typical refugee film. A coming of age story, this uplifting documentary shares the reality of what it means to be a teenager and a displaced person. This is the story of what comes after, and what it means to remake your home. 72 minutes

Resilience

‘Resilience’ is a short uplifting documentary highlighting the important work of the inclusive NGO organisation Symbiosis in helping Bangladeshi women fight their way out of poverty. The documentary focuses on empowering women to be able to participate equally in Bangladesh society and shares aspects of these women’s lives. Created by local resident Bryan McClelland and edited by Suellen Baker.  25 minutes
