The first documentary set to be screened is ‘Samaritans, can I help you?’. This film looks at the charity founded over 60 years ago by Chad Varah to give emotional support to those at risk of suicide.
‘Aspire’, a film about the users and volunteers of the ground-breaking community hub based in the redundant Holy Trinity Church in Ryde, will be the second documentary to be shown.
In 2018, David’s short film, ‘Mate Crime’ commissioned by Healthwatch Isle of Wight, was shown at the Royal Society of Medicine. Now, following its premier at Ventnor Arts Club last September, David has been invited to show his documentary ‘Wightwash’ – about the Isle of Wight Council’s ill-fated Eco Island project – at the University of Indiana in June 2019.
The screenings of ‘Samaritans, can I help you?’ and ‘Aspire’ will be taking place on Friday 15th February at 19:30 at Ventnor Arts Club, High Street, Ventnor.
Approximate running time 2 hours 30 minutes, including one interval. A Q&A will follow each film.
