Whistle Down the Wind with introductory talk by Kevin Graal, Storyteller.
Set on a Lancashire farm, Kathy discovers a man wanted for murder hiding in her family's barn. When she asks him who he was, he says 'Jesus Christ' just before he falls unconscious. Kathy and her siblings are convinced that he is Jesus and try to hide him from grown-ups. The film contrasts the children’s innocent faith with the pragmatic and suspicious adults in town. Heavy in allegory, many of the characters and events parallel those found in historical Christian literature.
This season we will be holding a series of informal talks under the title of Speakers' Corner. Prior to every film showing, a speaker will look at the broader thematics of the film both with regard to belief systems and themes.
