Brontë 200 - Lily Cole: Balls

Premiere screening of Lily Cole's short film

Premiere screening of Lily Cole's short film

Lily Cole, the Brontë Society’s creative partner for 2018, has created a film to mark Emily Brontë’s bicentenary. On display at the Brontë Parsonage Museum, and also at the Foundling Museum, London, Balls takes as its starting point Heathcliff, the foundling character central to Wuthering Heights, and explores links between the Foundling Hospital story and the much-loved novel by Emily Brontë. To accompany the film,  we display objects from the Foundling Museum Collection. In partnership with the Foundling Museum, the film is produced by Fury Films, co-commissioned by Rapid Response Unit and was filmed on location in Liverpool. The script  is co-written by Lily Cole and Stacey Gregg.
This very special event on the eve of Emily’s 200th birthday will see Lily Cole present a premiere screening of her short film. She will be discussing the issues and stories explored through her commission alongside Caro Howell, Director of the Foundling Museum.

Tickets £12/£10 concessions and Brontë Society members (£5 for 16-25 year olds). Ticket holders will have the opportunity to visit the Museum after the event to see the installation. Please book in advance at www.bronte.org.uk/whats-on or on 01535 640192.
Lily Cole: Balls will be exhibited at the Brontë Parsonage Museum from 30 July until  3 December 2018, and is free with admission to the Museum.
