2044 ADVENTURE-EL CAMINO BY PAOLA MENDEZ

2044 ADVENTURE-EL CAMINO BY PAOLA MENDEZ

PAOLA MENDEZ, a member of the Latin American Community in Canberra, embarked in a charity adventure in April 2024. She will walk 815 km over 31 days to raise funds for Meg’s Children Nepal. This is a foundation based in Albury, NSW and was created almost 20 years ago. They support children who would otherwise not be able to attend school in Kathmandu, Nepal. The foundation provides accommodation, food, clothes and tuition.
95% of donations directly support children and I am excited and inspired to help where I can.
Thank you so much

Reel McCoy Film Group – Screening of “The American Friend”

Reel McCoy Film Group – Screening of “The American Friend”

On Sunday 28 April at 12:30PM, the Reel McCoy Film Group will screen the 1977 Wim Wenders film, "The American Friend". Adapted from Patricia Highsmith's novel, the film follows the enigmatic friendship between a terminally ill picture framer and a mysterious American art dealer drawn into the world of contract killing. Set against a backdrop of existential dread and moral ambiguity, this is as introspective and psychologically tangled as thrillers come, and all the more compelling for it. A mesmerising and superbly crafted film.

On Sunday 12 May at 12:30PM, the Reel McCoy Film Group will screen the 1999 film, "The Election". Reese Witherspoon, in a breakthrough starring role, plays a peppy schoolgirl obsessed with winning the presidency of her high school's student council. Her civics teacher is appalled at her naked ambition and the inevitability of her success as the sole candidate. He attempts to manipulate the process while his private life becomes unhinged. The film was unsuccessful on release but has since become a cult classic.
