The charity Mission EmployAble and Chorleywood Film Club are holding a joint screening of an award-winning film, followed by a chance for viewers to put their questions to the film’s director Rosie Baldwin.
Wannabe filmmakers and film buffs of all ages will love Delta7even, an unexpectedly funny and uplifting film celebrating music, friendship and inclusion.
It takes the form of a short documentary (45mins) that charts a year in the lives of the members of rock band Delta7even from Eastbourne, Sussex, all of whom have a learning disability.
The band was formed as a result of an Arts Connect music course in 2014 and now regularly performs live at gigs and festivals.
As the film shows, jubilation at their early success soon turns to sorrow when Tom, the band’s mentor, dies and each band member deals with the tragedy differently.
The film is offered to Chorleywood Film Club by the charity Cinema For All, with the screening fee going to the band Delta7even.
Ticket proceeds from this event will go to Mission EmployAble, which is raising money for a training café for adults with learning disabilities, to be housed within the Cricket Club’s new pavilion.
Keith Frost, chair of the Film Club said: “This film is a perfect fit with Mission EmployAble and it presents a unique opportunity to ask a talented director about her work.”
This event is provisionally booked for Friday, March 5.
