This month’s movies involve translation to some degree in their concept. Perhaps they’re a foreign adaptation gone wrong; perhaps they tried to base the film on a culture they didn’t understand as well as they thought they did. Now you too will struggle through what happens when you want to bring a text to a new audience but can’t quite be bothered putting in the work to make it succeed!
The group will watch trailers to several cult movies that follow the above theme. Then the group votes on which film we want to watch that night. As this night a double-feature night!
The cover charge for this event is a donation to cover the costs of running this Meetup group (recommended minimum $5). Any excess for each 6-month period will be donated to the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre. Also, please support our lovely venue by buying a drink or two – trust me, you’ll probably need one to get through the film anyway…
So you know, currently 100% of your donations are going to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre until the end of the 6-month period! Last month we raised over $70 for the Centre.
