IT’S FILM WEEK! After winning a string of major awards including the 2009 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Departures went on to enchant audiences around the world. It centres on a young cellist who loses his job and finds himself reluctantly working in the funeral industry, knowing he will be shunned by many people, including friends and family. From this unpromising start, Departures blossoms into a lyrical, eye-opening film you are unlikely to ever forget.
Come along out of the cold this Thursday night for a touching film and stay after for supper and a discussion.
