Sight and Sound Continued: Film at 133

Our current film event kicked off with an exclusive screening at St George’s Theatre on Sunday June 14th at 5pm of Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain. A film about the industrial disaster at Union Carbide’s pesticide manufacturing site in Bhopal, India on December 3rd 1984 when 8000 local people were killed.

David Brooks, co-stars, writes and directs the film

The film stars Martin Sheen (West Wing, Apocalypse Now) Mischa Barton and Kal Penn amongst other leading actors.  The screening represents a rare and exclusive chance to see a major upcoming feature film before it goes on general release.

David Brooks, who has travelled extensively in India, co-stars, writes and directs the film said:

“I’m very happy to be supporting the GY Arts Festival and look forward to discussing the film with everyone who comes along during the Q and A session. There are so many issues – legal, medical and environmental and the story of this disaster unfolds daily still around the world”.

The film is beautifully crafted depicting the tragedy of the local workers and residents and the hypocrisy of those who neglected health and safety concerns, whilst failing to present themselves to the Indian authorities thereafter.

The screening was followed afterwards by a question and answer session with David Brooks (Writer, Director and ‘Shane’ opposite Martin Sheen in the film) and the owner of Gallery 133, Liam Murphy.

Money raised will be split between The Bhopal Medical Appeal to aid the injured survivors and Great Yarmouth film projects.
