The Barossa Film Club is holding its Annual General Meeting at Faith College Wine Centre at 6.45 pm on Friday 17th March, followed by the award-winning Afghan film, “The Kite Runner”, directed by Marc Foster and Rebecca Yeldham. Based on Khaled Hosseini’s best-selling novel, spanning from the final days of Afghanistan’s monarchy to the atrocities of the Taliban reign, an epic tale of fathers and sons, of friendship and betrayal, an unlikely friendship develops between Amir, the son of a wealthy Afghan businessman, and Hassan, a servant to Amir and his father. During a kite-flying tournament, an unspeakable event changes the nature of their relationship forever. As an adult haunted by the childhood betrayal, Amir seeks redemption by returning to his war-torn native land to make peace with himself and reconcile his cowardice.
After the AGM,, there will be a short film commencing at 7.30, followed by a break for refreshments, and then “The Kite Runner” will screen. Membership of $35 for the year, or $12 for 3 screenings, is available at the door, and further details are available from President Imelda Carson on 8564 8225.
