ASPECT film series: THE HOST
Wednesday 25 November 2015 7pm, The Maltings Theatre & Cinema
We're excited that Miranda Pennell will be joining us in Berwick to present THE HOST, her new film which recently premiered at the London Film Festival.
While investigating her late parents involvement with the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (BP) Miranda Pennell came across the letters of a petroleum geologist in Iran in the 1930s, who would later embark on a search for the origins of civilisation.
Setting out on its own exploration to decipher signs from the fragmented images buried in the BP archive, The Host interweaves stories drawn from both personal memory and from the records of an imperial history. Pennell's compelling film is about the stories we tell, the facts and fictions we live by - and their consequences.
The Host is the 9th ASPECT screening. The monthly series is a collaboration between the Independent Cinema Office, Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival and The Maltings Theatre & Cinema.
Tickets are £5 / £3 concession and can be purchased via The Maltings website here.
