Diversity: In Cinema
Equal Partners Foundation would like to welcome guests to a wine and movie night at The Splendid in Strait Street Valletta.
Showing two brilliantly made movies we aim to celebrate diversity and inclusion and portray the importance of having an inclusive society. The movies will be;
Mary and Max (2009) – a superb animation directed by Adam Elliott. An Australian drama/comedy based on a true story relating the story of an unlikely friendship between a lonely 8 year old and an obese 44 year old.
My Flesh and Blood (2003) – a compelling movie portraying the true story of Susan Tom and her 11 adopted special needs children. Made in the USA and directed by Jonathan Karsh it conveys in a most notable way the hardships of having a disability.
Screening will start at 19.00 hrs, showing Mary & Max first, followed by a short break in which people can buy wine and refreshments being served in the courtyard. My Flesh & Blood will be screened at 21.15; attendees are welcome to lounge in the courtyard after projections and during the second movie.
Tickets can be bought at the door; one movie for 3 euro while two movies for 5 euro. All of the proceeds will go further the Foundation’s aim and support persons with disabilities in having a more independent life in a more inclusive society.
