The Yellow Wallpaper

The Hypatia Trust presented a special screening of this highly successful film, and also arranged personal appearances by its star, Julia Watson, and director, John Clive. It was shown at the Acorn Theatre, Penzance, on International Women's Day, and was attended by a large and enthusiastic audience.

The film is based on the story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860 - 1935), the American humanist, feminist and novelist.

The evening started with a wine & cheese reception in the downstairs bar, and the film was then shown in the theatre, after Julia and John had been introduced to the audience by Alice Kavounas.

After the film there was a question and answer session with Julia and John.
