The event will be held at ‘La Papel’: the new arts and craft centre on the corner of the Highway and the gap into Laborie at Rudy John beach.
The open-air viewing commences at 7 pm and will be accompanied not just by the sound of waves on the beach and the wind in the coconut trees, but also by live drumming, quadrille dancing, a capella singing, and speeches from the producer of the movie, Dale Elliott; Dr Jolien Harmsen, co-author of the recently published book ‘A History of St Lucia’, and Vieux Fort senator the Hon. Deborah Tobierre.
Admission is EC$5. Juice and snacks free.
The movie ‘The History of St Lucia’ is the latest in the series ‘Untold Stories’, produced by Dale Elliott and his team at the Independent Film Company. Other topics tackled in the series include ‘Mothers of Sorrow’, ‘Homeless in St Lucia’, ‘the History of Racing’, ‘Homosexuality, Nature or Nurture?’ and ‘Games of Chance’.
Sunday’s evening of historical drama, drumming and dance is made possible with the help of the Independent Film Company, Lighthouse Road Publications, The Reef Beach Cafe, True Value Hardware, and Laborie Promotions.
