“There were people sitting on the walls, watching from broken cars, screaming when they saw their own township up on the big screen. Even in the middle of the movie when it started raining – nobody left. They sat and watched until the end…”
Last year a Du Noon local, Howard James Fyvie shot his first feature film. Not only was some of this shot in our backyard but Zama a young Du Noon actor was among the talented cast. So when the film was ready, we requested a special Du Noon screening.
Short&Sweet so generously pulled in to help us and with the “Last ones Out” team we managed to convert our office cul de sac (that we had just the day before cleaned) into an outside movie theater.
The film itself blew us away. Even the rain could not tear our eyes away from the screen. We are so proud of Howard and Zama and all other “Dunoonies” involved.
It was great to have something different to do on a Sunday night. The event reminded us how the arts is such a powerful tool to bring people together. It offers a break to the mundane and can really inspire change. So thanks to Last Ones Out and short and sweet. Lets do it again soon!
This was the last official myDunoon event for the year and we are satisfied in the progress we are seeing in our community. We have proved the sceptics wrong, showing that with perseverance we can overcome and get things done. We have and will continue to demonstrate the good in our community. The potential that is brimming under the surface, potential that will change the world.
Our Goal this year has been to activate, to unify. We still have a long road ahead of us but we are more excited than ever to embrace the challenges with both hands- knowing that together we can.
