THE INSATIABLE MOONSunday 10th October 7.30pm St Luke’s
This film is being premiered in London in the second week of October – we have a preview showing of it at St Luke’s Church. The film is based on the original novel ” The Insatiable Moon” by an old friend of St Luke's, Mike Riddell and directed by his wife Rosemary Riddell. They’ve created a deeply emotive movie and when you consider the difficulties they overcame you realize what a remarkable achievement it is. Mike’s novel – published in 1997 – is outstanding and controversial. It was based on his experiences working with psychiatric patients in halfway houses while he was the minister at Ponsonby Baptist; in particular a big Maori called Arthur who believed himself to be the next son of God. The novel cost Mike his position at Carey theological college but gave him freedom and impetus to teach, write, travel and begin the saga of bringing The Insatiable Moon to the big screen. Both Mike & Rosemary will be at the screening and there will be a Q & A session following the film.
Admission is free/donations are welcomed.
