Shepton Montague Film Season starts with ‘Benediction’, Jack Lowden stars as Siegfried Sassoon

September 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Legendary 20th Century war poet Siegfried Sassoon’s life-long quest for personal salvation through his experiences with family, war, his writing, and destructive relationships goes unresolved, never realizing it can only come from within.

BENEDICTION explores the turbulent life of First World War poet, Siegfried Sassoon, through the eyes of the revered filmmaker Terence Davies. Sassoon was a complex man who survived the horrors of fighting in the First World War and was decorated for his bravery but who became a vocal critic of the government’s continuation of the war when he returned from service. His poetry was inspired by his experiences on the Western Front and he became one of the leading war poets of the era.

6.45pm for 7.30pm.

£7 or £30 for a pew of five.

Refreshments available. Proceeds to church funds.
