Chagford Film Festival - the excitement mounts!

Together again
Maxine Fone - star of 'The Laidley Worm of Spindleston Heugh'
and Elizabeth-Jane Baldry - producer & director
with Oberon the fairy harp at Jubilee Hall Chagford

Wednesday afternoon
The last surviving Ministry of Technology
mobile cinema
arrives in Chagford Square

commissioned by Tony Benn in 1967

lovingly restored by enthusiast,
Ollie Halls
(Ollie's mobile cinema website)
with the latest projection equipment

take your seats . . .
. . . for a unique cinema experience    

6pm: 'Head Girl' EJ Baldry
is in Jubilee Hall to share her enthusiasm
for the new fairy film which premièred in April
'The Laidley Worm of Spindleston Heugh'

- starring Maxine Fone
actor, dancer, singer
- stage director of the 'Mediaeval Baebes'

Maxine is the wicked stepmother
who summons imps and leads them in a dance
before sending them to destroy Prince Childe Wynd
(see video excerpt with music by EJ Baldry)

8pm - Elizabeth-Jane is ready
for her live performance
- harp accompaniment to
Georg Wilhelm Pabst's
'Tagebuch einer Verlorenen'

EJ gently accompanies the opening titles

then plays perfectly for two hours.
- EJ's own composition precisely fits the action
of Pabst's harrowing masterpiece

starring Louise Brooks as Thymian Henning
whose life is ruined by the clerk in her father's pharmacy
- Meinert (Fritz Rasp)

She is sent to a reformatory
run by a draconian director 
(Andrews Engelman)

- and his sadistic wife
(Valeska Gert)

Escape only makes her the victim of dissolute men

By the end, the audience - and EJ -
are overcome by emotion
