Journey's End in places of worship
As part of the British commemoration of the First World War centenary, Saul Dibb directed a film adaptation of the play Journey's End by R. C. Sherriff which was released earlier in the year. It was adapted by Simon Reade who also produced with Guy de Beaujeu of Fluidity Films, (who also produced Michael Morpurgo’s Private Peaceful.)
In association with charity Combat Stress, the team behind the film is providing an opportunity for churches to screen the film for their local community to watch and engage with the issues it presents surrounding soldiers’ physical and psychological experiences of trench warfare.
Lionsgate International (the film’s distributor) is providing a special one-off licence (for free) for churches and places of worship who would like to screen this film. If you would like to find out more or request a screening, please visit https://www.churchofengland.org/first-world-war-centenary.
NB that the screening cannot be held in community or church halls – it must be within the church or place of worship.
over 150 churches have already signed up.
