The Country and The City: film screening
Date(s) - 09/02/2013
7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The film documentary The Country and The City by the award winning Director Mike Dibb was first shown on BBC television. Raymond Williams’ book of the same title was re-published by Spokesman Books in 2011, http://www.spokesmanbooks.com/acatalog/Raymond_Williams.html . The film explores contrasting ideas of country and city, challenging assumed values of the country as natural and demonstrating the labour necessary to maintain the apparent gentility of a country estate.
Screening is staged by the News from Nowhere Club who hold regular meetings on the second Saturday of each month from 7.30. Events are free. Further details can be found at, http://www.raymondwilliamsfoundation.org.uk/NfNprogramme.html .
