Film night: The Piano
Set in New Zealand in the mid-19th century, The Piano tells the story of Ada, a mute widow, who travels across the world for an arranged marriage, bringing with her her daughter Flora, who acts as her sign language interpreter, and her beloved piano. ‘It is one of those rare movies that is not just about a story, or some characters, but about a whole universe of feeling – of how people can be shut off from each other, lonely and afraid, about how help can come from unexpected sources, and about how you’ll never know if you never ask.’ (Roger Ebert)
(Campion, 1993, 120mins, chosen and introduced by Atapini)
The film will start at 7pm. If you want, you can join us for dinner from 6pm (please bring a vegan dish to share).
Film nights, like much of the rest of Cardiff Buddhist Centre, can take place because of the generosity of people who come along.
If you can, please pay what you feel it is worth to you — we suggest £5.
We hope to see you there.
