Melksham Assembly Hall will be getting a visit from Bath-based director Keith Kopp and screenwriter Laurence Guy, who are holding a Q&A session following an early screening of their hard-hitting romantic drama, Translations.
The film stars Kate Morgan-Jones (TV’s The Pact) as agoraphobe Stef, who has not left the house since the death of her brother, Liam. She is soon visited by Liam’s best friend, Evan (Alan Emrys of Host and TV’s Young Wallander) and as the two unpack their shared trauma, sparks begin to fly. Caught between Evan’s images of a world outside that they could inhabit, and a story of lost love that Stef is translating from a previous generation, Stef must choose the kind of future she wants, and whether Evan will be a part of it.
A hit on the festival circuit, this thoughtful and emotionally complex drama has been praised for its moody aesthetics and depiction of loneliness, grief and mental health.
Translations screens at Melksham Assembly Hall on June 30th at 8.00pm, with the Q&A session after the film. Tickets are available from www.melkshamassembly.co.uk or Melksham Town Hall.
