Zululand, South Africa, 1879. The British are fighting the Zulus and one of their columns has just been wiped out at Isandlwana. The Zulus next fix their sights on the small British outpost at Rorke's Drift. At the outpost are 150 British troops under the command of Lieutenants Bromhead and Chard. In the next few days these 150 troops will fight about 4,000 Zulus in one of the most courageous battles in history.
This is a special screening in association with the Hadleigh & Thundersley Community Archive (HT&CA). Actor James Booth lived in Hadleigh and H&TCA have commissioned a short film showcasing a series of photographic portraits by local photographer Robert Hallmann shot in the 1970s at his home. Robert fondly recalls meeting James Booth and James' son recounts anecdotes of his father. The film will be screened prior to the main feature. A special prize draw raffle will be open from early 2019.
