A Little Piece of Paradise – Young at Heart Culture Club

By April 7, 2014 Congratulations

A Little Piece of Paradise is a short documentary on Parsley Bay, Sydney created by participants of Metro Screen’s Documentary Filmmaking Workshop for Seniors in January 2014.

Over a 3 day workshop, participants learnt technical and creative skills to produce the documentary under the supervision of course tutor and Metro Screen graduate, Simon Koloadin.

The short documentary will screen along with feature film, Still Mine, at Young at Heart Culture Club on Thursday 24th April.

Metro Screen congratulates the participants Beverley Bergen, Sandra Paech, Marie McMillan, Joyce Samra and Simon Stokes.

The project was supported by Woollahra Municipal Council Community and Cultural Grants.


About Young at Heart Culture Club:

Introduced in January 2014, Young at Heart Culture Club is a monthly event for over 55s, held at the gorgeous Erskineville Town Hall in Sydney’s Inner-West. Each month features exclusive daytime screening and/or talk or workshop. It’s the perfect hub for seniors community to chat about movies and the arts over free tea and biscuits!

Taking place every last Thursday of the month, tickets are only $6 for seniors (over 55s) and $10 for everyone else.

Young at Heart Culture Club is run by The Festivalists, the non-profit team behind Young at Heart – Australia’s Seniors Film Festival.

Still Mine:

Still Mine is an exquisitely mounted and deeply affecting story about one man’s determination to create a suitable home for his ailing wife. Veterans James Cromwell (Best Actor, 2013 Canadian Film Awards) and Genevieve Bujold are nothing short of magnificent in the story of a couple with a deep and complicated past. When her health begins to fail, Craig chooses – against the odds and everyone’s advice – to build a new, more suitable home for Irene rather than leaving the farm they have lived on for decades.
