Telling Stories is something that binds a culture and a community - and the sharing of stories is often the motivation for people to come along to Josie Emery’s class at the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre “Telling Stories: Professional Writing for Print, Stage or Screen”.

The Maldon Neighbourhood Centre has offered a Professional Writing course taught by Josie Emery since 2013. Josie Emery’s depth of experience spans universities, adult education, the national film school AFTRS and the national literature development program – the Literature Board of the Australia Council – for the federal government.  Josie is also a published author, script writer and editor.

The Cinemachics will be at the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre again on Thursday 21 May, to ensure you have a good night while watching    the 2011 dark Irish comedy written by John Michael McDonagh and starring Brendon Gleeson.

THE GUARD portrays the lives of three very different policemen and how they attempt law and order in Galway.

David Stratton’s comments about it included this QQ ‘Augmenting a smart, witty screenplay is magnificent Scope camerawork by Larry Smith, using beautiful locations around the west coast of Ireland, which is a pretty dangerous place if this thoroughly entertaining and exceptionally well-acted film is to be believed.”
