THE MAKING OF THE FILM MR PIP – a Bougainville Library Trust fundraising event
Director, screenwriter and producer, ANDREW ADAMSON (left), (Shrek, The Chronicles of Narnia) will discuss the making of the film Mr Pip with LLOYD JONES, author of the award-winning novel Mister Pip, and film producer ROBIN SCHOLES, in an event at the Paramount Cinema on Wednesday 20 June to raise money to build a community library in Bougainville.
This is a rare opportunity to hear ANDREW ADAMSON speak in public. The panel discussion will focus on adapting the novel to the film as well as discussing the process of making the film. The discussion will be chaired by playwright KEN DUNCUM.
For this event Andrew Adamson has prepared an exclusive 10 minute film package from the film Mr Pip. The film is likely to be released early next year with Hugh Laurie in the leading role of Mr Watts.
LLOYD JONES (right) established the Bougainville Library Trust to plan, build, stock and fundraise for a community library in Arawa, Bougainville. The Trust works closely with New Zealand VSA and the Bougainville community.
“The aim of the library is to bolster literacy and help rebuild the island’s cultural confidence in post-crisis Bougainville,” says Jones.
