The Moon & The Sledgehammer Screening With Philip Trevelyan

Caught By The River's next installment is a screening of the cult movie The Moon And The Sledgehammer including a Q&A with the director of the film Philip Trevelyan
next Wednesday 9th November from 7pm at Rough Trade East.

THE MOON AND THE SLEDGEHAMMER: Philip Trevelyan's unique portrait of the remarkable steam-loving Page Family.

THE MOON AND THE SLEDGEHAMMER is a film about a family of real people: Mr Page; his two sons Jim and Peter; and his two daughters, Kathy and Nancy. Mrs Page died long ago. The Pages live in a ramshackle house situated in six acres of woodland, which they own themselves, in the heart of the commuter-belt, 20 miles south of London. The trees cut the Pages off completely from the outside world, and isolated in their island-clearing, they let the 20th Century slowly pass them by. It is a simple life without running water, electricity or gas. Peter and Jim earn what little money the family needs by doing casual repairs to tractors and farm-machinery in the neighbourhood. Machinery is the permanent obsession of Mr Page and his sons.

Tickets are limited to 120. Buy your £5 ticket at Rough Trade East or online here. If buying online please remember to print your order as a reference and bring it along with you on the evening.
