The Roses: Words on Wide Screen Festival
Jane Eyre on Film
Saturday 27 July 2013 at 2pm
The Elmbury Room, Tewkesbury Library, Sun Street, Tewkesbury
In this interactive lecture, scriptwriter and author Elspeth Rushbrook looks at screen adaptations of Charlotte Brontë’s gothic romance over the last 30 years. With clips, stills and seldom seen outtakes, Elspeth follows Jane’s spiritual journey and looks at three seminal characters who only have fleeting film appearances.
In partnership with Tewkesbury Library, Words In Wide Screen shines a light on many different approaches to adapting the written word for the screen. With events taking place in Tewkesbury Library, just next door to The Roses, the series combines a host of film screenings, director talks, lectures and workshops to make this a complete experience for film fans and literature lovers alike.
