A POIGNANT film about the life of working mules in the Himalayas is the backdrop to an event at Liverpool FACT in March.
Dr Michael Brown spent over a year working in Nepal filming the beautiful documentary Khacchad: Mule which went on to win a Silver Medal at the North American Film Awards 2018 and be shortlisted for the International Travel Film Festival 2019.
Brown, a senior lecturer at LJMU Screen School, will discuss the film and its realisation at FACT on Wood Street on Thursday, 26th March.
Following the scfreening, a Q&A will be chaired by Dr Emma Roberts (LJMU) and she is joined by animal ethics expert Dr Simon Brooman, filmmaker Dr Michael Brown, equine community engagement specialist Julia Smith, and Dr Keith Marley, a film theory academic (LJMU).
The event is £3 to attend - book here at Eventbrite. Doors open at 6.15 pm and the screening begins at 6.30 pm.
A retiring collection in aid of Animal Nepal will be made.
