Many thanks for last Friday… it was wonderful being down into the caves and really added to the programme of films… such a contrast to the warm summer evening above ground. I found the last film very moving and several images have lingered. It was particularly interesting to view that film after seeing ‘I am Nisrine’ at the Watershed a couple of weeks ago which was about the experience of two teenagers, sent by their parents to England from Iran and arriving in Newcastle, the relationships they formed – a wonderful powerful film.
I also really enjoyed the Kama3 with the guy’s steadfast unblinking gaze, although I wanted them to burst out laughing at the end. I found the Bulgarian one incredibly sad!!
