A Humber Mouth Special Commission

The Bransholme Women's Centre presents: Book Launch

Over the past three months a group of women from the Bransholme Women's Centre have been working with York based poet Margaret Speak to produce a collection of poems and stories. The women met through a support group at the centre which exists to discuss and recognise potential triggers of panic and anxiety. Rollercoaster explores the emotions caused by attacks of panic and anxiety as faced by some of the contributors on a daily basis.

The Bransholme Women's Centre provides a safe place for women and children to meet, offering a range of activities from education and training to counselling and support. For more information on this special commission please contact Diane Graham at the Bransholme Women's Centre (01482) 828755

The Innocents (18) & the work of Jack Clayton
Dir: Jack Clayton U.K. 1961 1hr 39mins

Adapted from the classic Henry James novella The Turn of the Screw about a Victorian governess who begins to suspect that the children in her charge are possessed by evil spirits, THE INNOCENTS is a wonderfully stylish and eerie interpretation of this ghostly tale. Arguably Jack Clayton's greatest work and a fascinating example of screen adaptation, Francois Truffaut pronounced it 'the best film after Hitchcock goes to America'.

This is a special performance introduced by Neil Sinyard, Senior Lecturer in Film Studies at Hull University. Neil has recently written a book on Jack Clayton, probably better known as the director of ROOM AT THE TOP and THE GREAT GATSBY. After the screening Neil will discuss Jack Clayton's interesting career with the audience.
