Jeremy Irons, Katrina Pavlos and Geoffrey Kent hosted a screening of French classic Un Coeur en at the Electric Cinema. The evening was sponsored by Abercrombie and Kent and raised money for FilmAid International while A&K’s also celebrated its latest venture - Extreme Adventures.
Irons: “When I was asked to choose a film for tonight and a film that has impressed me, it was very difficult. I thought back to a film, which when I saw it, I had no expectations but about ten minutes into the movie I thought this was made by a master. We all live in a world that subjugates society and I think that it is vital.”
“This is a love story and the great thing about a love story is that it connects to all of us, it effects all of us, we have all suffered and we all know it.”
