Film Screening at the Burns Centre

  • Thursday, 28 February 2013 - 10:00

This is an unique opportunity to see a film not on general release in the UK. 'The Mill and the Cross', by Polish director and artist Lech Majewski, opened recently to great acclaim in Montreal at the 30th International Festival of Films on Art. It takes as its subject The Way to Cavalry, a painting by Bruegel the Elder, to highlight the oppression of Bruegel's homeland under the Spanish occupiers of Flanders.

The film will be shown twice, in the morning at 10:45am with tea/coffee served before the film screening from 10:00am and again in the afternoon at 1:30pm with tea/coffee served after the screening.

This event has been organised by a local supporter group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
