I Carried A Watermelon – Katy Brand
A warm and witty look at how Katy Brand’s life-long obsession with the film Dirty Dancing has shaped her own attitudes to love, sex, romance, rights and responsibilities. Part memoir, part homage to a monster hit and a work of genius, Katy examines its legacy as a film with a powerful social agenda, pushing women’s stories to the forefront and creating a fresh and powerful take on the classic coming of age story.
Event includes a screening of Dirty Dancing (12A)
With the kind support of Film Unit
In conversation with Professor Vanessa Toulmin
