The first Chagword Run-up Event is tonight!
Chris Chapman introduces his documentary film:
How Many People See the Stars as I Do?
Where: Jubilee Hall, Chagford
When: Thursday, 12 June, 2014, 7:30 pm
Since 1975, Throwleigh resident Chris Chapman has been documenting the traditional Dartmoor way of life in his exceptional photographs, books, television programmes and documentary films.
In this film, he explores the life and legacy of his friend Hope Bourne, the great Exmoor author, who died in 2010 at the age of 91. Chris has sifted through layers of mythology and misinformation to find the true Hope Bourne beneath: a bold, courageous woman whose work and passion for Exmoor are revered today.
“How many people see the stars as I do? Not many in this modern world, I think,” said Hope. “We have bartered our heritage for too many other things. Our small lives are hemmed about with fetters of our own making and our souls caught in a web of our own weaving. Who shall set us free? ”
This event is hosted by Chagword, the Dartmoor Literary Festival in Chagford. Please come see an extraordinary film and give your support to Chagword at the same time.
