It looks like this thread is slightly mis-named. Can a mod please correct this (and then this post can be deleted as well)?

SPECIAL EVENT SCREENING

DIARY FOR MY CHILDREN
SUNDAY 22nd NOVEMBER, AT 2.15 PM – RENOIR CINEMA, LONDON

Márta Mészáros’ highly praised film receives a rare screening in London at this special Kinēmatheque event and we hope to welcome her and Éva Pataki (renowned co-writer of two of the films in the DIARY trilogy) to the screening.

"DIARY is one of Mészaros' most accomplished films: subtle, yet incredibly haunting, its combination of the personal and the political has lost none of its emotional resonance in the years since its release" - DVD Outsider

We hope to see you at the screening.
Early booking is recommended and tickets can be booked at http://www.curzoncinemas.com/whats_on/r ... a_meszaros" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; or by calling 0871 703 3991.

We are sorry to tell you that due to last-minute unforeseen circumstances Márta Mészáros will now not be able to join us in London this Sunday 22nd for the screening of her film at the Renoir. However, we are really happy that Éva Pataki, co-writer of films in the DIARY trilogy and Meszaros' close friend, will be attending and will introduce the screening and take part in the Q&A which will be hosted by broadcaster and writer John Riley.

While it's obviously a shame to lose Márta, this might actually liven up the flow of the Q&A, as Eva speaks much better English (pretty much fluent, if I remember rightly), and as a very long-term collaborator I doubt there's much that she doesn't know about her work.

SPECIAL EVENT!
Central and Eastern European London Review present
Hungary 60: Márta Mészáros Celebration


with director Márta Mészáros and actor Zsuzsa Czinkóczi in person!

Saturday 29 October 2016, 2pm-8.30pm
Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Place, London W2 1QJ

To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the 1956 Hungarian revolution, Central and Eastern European London Review have invited the renowned Hungarian director Márta Mészáros, along with actor Zsuzsa Czinkóczi, star of several of her films, to London's Frontline Club.

Programme:
2.00pm 'Like Something Out of Shakespeare: the Stalin Years in Hungary,' talk by CEEL Editor Robin Ashenden.

3.00pm Diary for My Children (1984): Juli, a young orphan, returns to Hungary from Russia to live with her aunt, a rigidly committed Stalinist who will play a sinister role in the political upheaval that follows. Meanwhile, Juli leads her teenage life: rebelling, falling in love with the cinema and the opposite sex, and trying to find her bearings in a country spiralling radically off-course.

5.20pm Diary for My Loves (1987): In this sequel, we see Juli growing to adulthood through the seismic event of Stalin's death, experiencing to the full the miraculous, fleeting thaw that follows and discovering her own voice as a film-maker.

7.30pm Q&A with Márta Mészáros and star Zsuzsa Czinkóczi, moderated by Central European film specialist Dr Peter Hames.

Tickets for this very special event are available on Eventbrite:
