This bit comes from the Bristol Silents page (http://www.bristolsilents.org.uk/events.php?eventname=Nanook-of-the-North):

Nanook of the North (With Paul McGann & The Matinee Idles)
Date: 11 June 2006
Location: The Rex, Berkhamsted
Time: 18:00

Bristol Silents are once again collaborating with our friends At THE REX CINEMA.

NANOOK OF THE NORTH (1922) is a beautifully filmed, simple account of a few weeks in the life of Nanook, an Inuit living east of the Hudson Bay, and his family. Today, the film is hailed as a cinematic milestone of cinema and the director, Robert Flaherty, was widely regarded as ‘the father of documentary’.

“When the film was released, it got rave reviews and no- one called it a documentary. It simply seemed to be in a class by itself. It still is.” Derek Malcolm, The Guardian

The film is accompanied by a live semi-improvised score from THE SHRINE SYNCHROSYSTEM featuring Max Reinhardt and world music kora master Tunde Jegede plus Ben Mandelson.

Also featured (and back by popular demand following their appearance at Paul Mertons’s Silent Clowns event last year) are THE MATINEE IDLES. Paul McGann, ex-DARTS members Den Hegarty, Griff Fender and Pikey Butler plus Debbie Charles from THE MINT JULIPS, have joined forces to create a unique brand of acapella vocal - a truly stunning display of close-part harmonies.

Plus: Laurel and Hardy in BIG BUSINESS (1929). A marvellous tit for tat short from the masters of comedy with live piano accompaniment.

What a good birthday present! I've just heard a teeny bit of the Matinee Idles up on the Bristol Silents website, and they sound great. I'm sure you and Sam will have a fun time.

Is anyone else going to this?

Sam can't make it but I have booked my seat today! It's only about an hour and a half driving time from here. I asked my husband if he wanted to go - the reply was "what, when the World Cup is on?" So he gets to babysit our girls, and I get an afternoon off - although he did suggest I take them with me!

Maybe we in the US can be with you in spirit, Michelle. Smile I'm not sure your daughters would enjoy Nanook of the North. They might be bored by this silent film of life in the frozen north.

Anyway, perhaps you'll consider telling Paul hi from the Library. Smile
