And there wasn’t a life jacket in sight...

We don’t know how we did it, but we did it. We packed close to 100 people on a 30-foot river steamer and lost not a soul—despite rapids, crocodiles, mosquitoes and hostile Germans. That’s what happened when the Film Club sailed on The African Queen—and it couldn’t have been a more entertaining way to end our 2018-2019 season.

The HCAM boutique featured items produced by the Tailoring School at our sister parish in Kenya. The bags and pouches helped raise funds for our work in Africa.

 

In addition to heading down the river with Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn, guests were treated to a boutique of craft items from our sister parish in Dandora, Kenya, a presentation by Monica Fernandez from our Holy Cross African Ministry (HCAM), and a panel discussion about the film, featuring Clare Denk, Archivist, Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, Father Vince Kuna, CSC, Family Theater Productions, and Peggy Miley, actor and Film Club member.  

 

Fall is only a few months away, and so is the 2019-2020 Film Club season. Our focus will be “The Art of the Cinema.” The season will launch in September with the history of film, followed monthly by top-notch movies, each representing excellence in an aspect of filmmaking, such as screenwriting, set design or cinematography. Father David Guffey, CSC, Director, Family Theater Productions will be leading us all season as we explore the art of the cinema.
