Next weekend will see a thought provoking blend of cinema and music provide a unique glimpse into the hidden world of modern Beijing when a silent film comes to Hilgay Village Hall.

Through a beautifully crafted blend of silent film, tragic story and specially composed live music, Written in Dust is an experience not to be missed when it arrives next Friday.

Classical Chinese musician Ling Peng and music artist DJ Si Tew, provide a perfect fusion of traditional Chinese instruments and modern music in a live music interpretation which underpins this powerfully moving story.

The film tells the tragic tale of three young Chinese rural migrants in search of a new life in modern Beijing.

But the promises of the city and the oppression of love lead to betrayal, heartache and ultimate tragedy in a story which translates without words, beautifully portrayed on screen as the two cultures collide.

Funded by Creative Arts East, Norfolk County Council and West Norfolk Council, the production will take place at 8pm, with doors opening at 7.30pm.

This show is suitable for over 16s and also features a post-show talk by the director.

Tickets cost £7 and can be booked by calling 01366 387555.
