British Film Week

We're presenting a British Film Week - the first for many years in China apparently - at the wonderful Broadway MOMA arthouse cinema which I've posted about more than once. We chose ten films but three were turned down by the censor so we've got seven, ranging from comedy (Tamara Drewe), and Sci-Fi (Moon and Monsters) to a thriller (The Escapists) and true-life dramas (Touching the Void and 127 Hours). But tonight, opening night, we screened the enjoyable, semi-unclassifiable Skeletons, directed by Nick Whitfield, who was in attendance - along with his brother Simon who 'did' the music.  

We did a Q&A afterwards. There seemed to be quite a few film students in the audience so the questions were intelligent, if a little long & technical. Simon surprised everyone with his Chinese (he's lived in Shanghai and Taipei for some time).
