“Russell Kane’s level of ability is amazing….His act combines
huge energy and a freak personality with a rapidly delivered

rabble rouser” Time Out. “Many comics feign weirdness, but

A big thank you to everyone who came along and to all the
helpers, especially the table movers and shakers!
Dartmouth Film Society report:
Director: Hirokazu Kore-Eda. Actors: Hiroshi Abe, Yui
Natsukawa. 114minutes. The Yokoyama family come
together to celebrate the memory of their youngest son
Junpei, who died fifteen years ago while rescuing a boy from
drowning. Over the course of one summer day we follow the
family, bound together by love as well as resentments and
secrets, as new relatives become acquainted, old stories are
retold, food is prepared and an elegant graveside ritual
takes place. It is with warmth and gentle humour that we
follow the complex dynamics between the equally annoying,
lovely and precious characters of the Yokoyama family, all
masterfully drawn by Kore-Eda.
Films are screened at The Guildhall, Victoria Road,
Dartmouth. The bar is open from 7.30pm and the films start
approx. 8pm. Guest tickets are available on the night for
£3.50 each from “The Windjammer” Victoria Road between
7.30pm & 7.55pm only. No guest tickets will be sold on the
door. To join Dartmouth Film Society, or for more
