Farm Street Films
Comment Email Print

There can't be many parishes that also have film clubs, but Farm Street Jesuit Church in Mayfair has  been running one for a while. They have a very thoughtful season of classic film screenings coming up. This Thursday, at 6.45pm they  will be showing Rosetta (1999, directed by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardennes) with an introduction by Peter Bridgman.

Emilie Dequenne plays the title role in a film that became a rallying cry in Belgium for political and social action. After the film won the 1999 Palme D’Or, the Belgian government passed a law establishing a minimum wage for young workers, and this law became known as the “Rosetta Bill”.

And for your diaries – Farm Street Films up to Christmas will be: 18 November: Bicycle Thieves (dir. Vittorio De Sica, 1948); 2 December: Miracle in Milan (dir Vittorio De Sica, 1951);  and 16 December: Father Brown (dir Robert Hamer, 1954).
