An Evening with the River Mel – the Waterlight Project’s film premiere

8.00pm, 25th July 2019: Community Hall, Melbourn 

Inspired by the River Mel, poet Clare Crossman wrote nine poems capturing the essence of our beautiful chalk stream. She then linked up with filmmaker James Murray-White to make a film about the river based on her poems. Further filming has been carried out by Nigel Kinnings, who has also edited the film. 

After a year of extensive filming, capturing memories, interviewing residents, involving Meldreth primary school children, the film is now going to be shown in Melbourn.

We will show the film then, after a break for refreshments and chat, we will share experiences of the river recounted to us by local residents. Following this, we hope attendees will participate in a general discussion and share their memories of the river, which we can record for the website.

Following the local showing, the film will also be shown in Royston and at venues in Cambridge, and it’s planned to also show it at film festivals around the country.
