Those lovely people at Eland Books who publish the most amazing range of classic travel books have announced that the Traveller’s Film Club is to return!
Previously held at Waterstones, Piccadilly, the film club will be relaunched in the hall of the magnificent Holy Redeemer Church on Exmouth Market on Thursday 6th December.
The first film will be Night Mail, a 1936 black and white classic that documents the nightly postal train operated by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway. Narrated by John Grierson and Stuart Legg, the film closes with the much loved lines from W. H. Auden with a score by Benjamin Britten.
‘This is the night mail crossing the border, bringing the cheque
and the postal order.’
The film is widely considered a masterpiece of the British documentary film movement.
Entry is free. 6.30pm drinks and pop-up bookshop
8pm film showing (The film is 23 minutes long)
