Ever since we remodeled the garage, I have planned to show all forms of projection on the back wall.–presentations, art and films for small audiences. It has all been a dream until we tried it this past week–until then, I didn’t know if it would work. I have wanted to test it by showing one of my favorite films to a group of women, so I picked my book club.
It was my turn this month, and instead of a book, I decided to share a foreign film. I figure having to read subtitles gets me by on a technicality, since reading is still required. We watched the French film, “Amelié,” and it was really cool seeing it with the club. My pal, Michele, even dressed the part for a little extra French fun. For all but two of the gals, it was their first time seeing this new classic. It sparked a lot of conversation–at least as much as any book would have–and the party didn’t end until midnight, which is a clear record for me, anyway.
I am thrilled that the venue worked so well, and I completely appreciate that my clubmates made no mention of kicking me out, even though I clearly cheated.
