Each Monday before the Homeless Film Club, a group of 20 to 30 elderly folks from around West London gather together to watch a film at the “Silver Screen Film Club”. My involvement has tapered down over the past year, but I still occasionally enjoy sitting around talking over a cup of tea before or after the movie with men and women who are a few years older than me.
Last autumn, the BBC organized a project to help a group of 6th formers create a short video in which they interviewed Silver Screen members along with local primary school kids about their favorite movies. You can read about the project and watch the four minute result of their efforts here:
Towards the end, Christoph Boss, New City’s MAP apprentice, makes a brief appearance but you have to watch carefully to see him!
