Dartmouth's very own Matthew Lock, recently graduated from Newport University is also included.

Pop along to 20 Foss St, Dartmouth, Tues-Sat 10am - 5pm, to see this exceptional exhibition or view it online by clicking here.


4.   Lemon Tree tonight!

Salma Zidane, a widow, lives simply from her grove of lemon trees in the West Bank's occupied territory. When the Israeli defence minister and his wife move next door, the Secret Service order the trees removed for security. The stoic Salma seeks assistance from the Palestinian Authority (useless), Israeli army (dismissive), and a young attorney, Ziad Daud. While the courts deliberate, the Israelis fence in her trees and prohibit her from entering the grove. As the trees wither, the defence minister's wife and, separately, an Israeli journalist, look on Salma with sympathy. In this allegory, does David stand a chance against Goliath?...‘Abbass’s starkly moving performance and the film’s closing shots make this metaphor for the unsolvable unforgettable’.

This film is on tonight.  Guest tickets can be purchased on the night of the screening at The Windjammer pub in Victoria Road, Dartmouth for £3.60 per film, between 7.30 – 7.55 pm. New members can join at the door on any screening night. For further information contact: Clive Osborne on 079-6802-6449
