The journey of our lives.

Special Poetry Reading and Film Screening

The University of Warwick is pleased to invite you to a special evening of poetry and film to mark the launch of the project ‘Chilean Exiles and World University Service (WUS)’  on 25 May 2017 at 18.00 in the Warwick Arts Centre cinema.

Actress Julie Christie (Dr Zhivago, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) and Film Festival Director Rosa Bosch will read poems by Pablo Neruda and Nicolás Guillén.

Journalist and forensic expert Duncan Campbell will introduce the film Cold Harbour (Stephen Frears, 1978). It tells the story of Tina, who is stranded in a new country and is in need of refuge and friends. She gets help, but events do not turn out quite as expected. Responding to the arrival of refugees from the Pinochet coup in Chile this is one of Frears’ (My Beautiful Laundrette, Florence Foster Jenkins) earliest films.

For complimentary tickets, please email [email protected].

Do please circulate this invitation to anyone who may have an interest in the project or topic.
