Walsingham Village Hall, Wells Road, NR22 6DJ

Walsingham Picture Palace on Tuesday 24th October

Join us for our half term screening! On Tuesday 24th October at 7.30pm.

We screen the animated film MY LIFE AS A COURGETTE (PG) + short (originally voiced in French, we are screening the English language version).
With Erick Abbate, Romy Beckman, Ness Krell, Amy Sedaris. Director Claude Barras. 66mins

Nominated in the 2017 Oscars Best Animation category, an animated film which defies categorisation. A film for half term week, this is not a purely children’s film. Claude Barras’ stop-motion animated feature is a poignant and well observed story about the darker side of childhood. It touches on bereavement, bullying and the desperate plight of young orphans but does so in a way that is humorous and ultimately redemptive.

The story of university professor Deborah Lipstadt’s legal battle for historical truth against World War II historian David Irving, who accuses her of libel when she declares him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system the burden of proof in a libel case is on the accused, so it’s up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.
