MOZART IN CHINA PG Friday 27th November 2009, 10:00
Having had a highly successful cooperation with the Goethe Institute and Watershed cinema, showing Emil und die Detektive in July this year, I am writing to let you know of another exciting event being organised by Bristol-Hannover Council, in cooperation this time with the Austrian Cultural Forum in London, the Bristol-China Partnership and the Watershed media centre.
There will be a screening at Watershed cinema of Mozart in China in German with subtitles. The film tells the story of a Chinese Austrian boy and his friend Danny who go to spend their holidays in China, not knowing that Mozart, a theatre marionette, has come alive and is hiding in Danny’s suitcase. Their exciting holiday is the subject of this film, which has been shown at Children’s Film Festivals all around the world from Montreal to Montevideo, London, Brisbane and many more. It is a film most suited for the younger age groups, e.g. Years 7/8.
As in July, before the main film, A short film made by A Hannover director will be shown, as the screening has the dual aim of raising the profile of Bristol’s twinning with Hannover and also encouraging the development of students’ German!
Tickets are free (only 60 places left!), but must be booked and are available now from Holly McIntosh either by email (email@example.com) or telephone: 0117 927 5128. Once booked, it is expected that schools will respect this commitment, although any minor adjustments to numbers can be arranged for. There will, however, be a penalty fee of £50 for cancellation within a week of the screening.

- I am Head of English at Fairfield High School and love working here! This is my sixth year at Fairfield and everyday continues to consolidate my opinion that we teach some of the best students in Bristol. I live locally, love cycling, cats, reading and painting. If I wasn't an English teacher in Bristol, I wouldn't mind living in Stockholm, Sweden and being an interior designer. I am also movie mad and watch at least 5 films a week. For the last three years I worked in partnership with the Watershed and lead many creative media projects for Fairfield (check out my other blog at www.mswredenfors.net).
