Two very contrasting films showing at the David Lean Cinema this week but both have in common an examination of the human spirit in difficulty.
On Tuesday we have the beautifully crafted, feature documentary One Note at a Time at 7.30pm, as part of Black History Month.
From director and producer Renee Edwards (who will be joining us along with composer Ray Russell for a Q and A after the film), it follows the devastating effect of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans in 2005. The film covers not only its human cost and effect on residents, but the iconic music scene and the musicians forced to leave their lives after the flooding. We discover how they felt compelled to return to the chaos and bleak confusion to play again to keep the music alive.
