The University of Warwick is pleased to invite you to a special evening of poetry and film to mark the launch of the project Chilean Exiles and World University Service (WUS).
Actress Julie Christie (Dr Zhivago, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) and Film Festival Director Rosa Bosch will read poems by Pablo Neruda and Nicolás Guillén.
Journalist and forensic expert Duncan Campbell will introduce the film Cold Harbour (Stephen Frears, 1978). It tells the story of Tina, who is stranded in a new country and is in need of refuge and friends. She gets help, but events do not turn out quite as expected. Responding to the arrival of refugees from the Pinochet coup in Chile this is one of Frears’ (My Beautiful Laundrette, Florence Foster Jenkins) earliest films.
