Annual Film Evening: “Subtitles Provided”
November 29 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
For this year’s programme Matthew Elliott has selected two excellent films with English language subtitles. Otherwise they could hardly be more different!
First is an episode from the well-received new Japanese TV series Miss Sherlock, set in modern day Tokyo. Both lead characters are Japanese women – Dr Wato Tachibana (“Wato-san”), a surgeon recently returned from a volunteer doctors’ mission in Syria, and Sara Shelly Futaba (“Miss Sherlock”), an investigation consultant to the police department who solves bizarre and difficult cases.
That’s followed by a rare silent classic: the 1923 film The Sign of Four, starring the great Eille Norwood, with Arthur Cullin as Dr Watson – appropriately younger and more dashing than Hubert Willis, who partnered Norwood in The Hound of the Baskervilles and an astonishing 45 short films.
This year’s Film Evening is scheduled for the 29th November. The venue once again will be the magnificent Hall of the Art Workers Guild in Queen Square, Bloomsbury.
