Lost In Film - Africa United (12A)

Monday 28th February 2011, 7:00pm

Location: St Barts Church Hall

Our February film will be Africa United, the story of three Rwandan children who decide to travel 3000 miles and cross 7 countries to reach the World Cup in South Africa. On the way they face dangers, find adventure and make new friends.

With spirited performances by the lead actors and vivid backdrops, Africa United has been described as Slumdog Millionaire set in Africa. It's a feel-good movie with serious underlying messages.

All profits from this screening will go to the Billy Riordan Memorial Trust, a charity which finances a clinic in rural Malawi serving 15,000 people. Cat Brewer will be giving a short talk before the film about her experiences of working in the clinic.

Total Film said "director Debs Gardner-Paterson gets disarming performances from her young leads and the soundtrack is terrific" while Radio Times said "the intention to make a film about the "real" Africa that's not all doom and gloom can't be faulted".

Africa United will be shown on Monday 28th February, at the Church Rooms, Church Lane, Lostwithiel.

Tickets cost £4 for adults and £2 for under 18s, and can be bought online from, in advance from Watts Trading or on the door if not already sold out.
