Oh goodness, I am on a panel – I am bricking it.
3 July 2012 – 6.30pm – tickets are £10
Looking In, Looking Out Festival, Conway Hall London
Bidisha leads a high-kicking whirl through Hollywood history and a celebration of the brilliant women who co-founded Hollywood, with film experts, critics, Old Hollywood fans and film lovers Jenny Hammerton, Muriel Zagha, Pamela Hutchinson and Kira Cochrane.
Followed by a screening at 8pm of Sunset Boulevard (1950) Gloria Swanson’s career-defiing performance in Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett’s Oscar-winning tragic tale of a star in decline. As much a reflection on the idea of Hollywood itself, as it is on love and loss.
