Season 2. Women and Motherhood

Independent films directed by women from around the world.
From the Philippines to Morocco and crossing into Colombia.


After the success of our very first film season in Town Hall Arts during Autumn and Winter 2017, we continue celebrating the diverse communities in Trowbridge, Wiltshire and surrounding areas through film. This will be in Spring and early Summer 2018 with a second season of our Community Cinema programme curated by Lorena Pino. This time we are exploring the central topic of motherhood - as a cycle in different stages - with three triple F-Rated films. That means they are directed by women, written by women and portray women on screen in their own right

‘It’s pretty bloody obvious that you and I haven’t got anything in common. But one thing - one thing we do have in common is that we have to keep this light going. Morning, noon and night, we have to keep it going’

Review by Adele Matterface

‘We may not win today, or tomorrow, but someday – we will win’


 ‘May’ is a play which showcases an emotional tale of activism, disability and sexuality. Performed solely by actor Phoebe Kemp, it premiered to a full audience at the Trowbridge Town Hall. The complete script includes a total of ten characters, seven of which Kemp played live onstage. This was a challenge she met confidently and gracefully and the show was considered an all-around success by its audience.

Review by Adele Matterface

‘At first, I thought the only problem was crossing the sea. Now we’re here… and I see that the problem is much bigger.’


Born in Syria (2016) is the award-winning documentary by director Hernán Zin. The film was screened in the Trowbridge Town Hall building on January 20th, two years after the Town Hall’s exhibition ‘From Syria with Love’, a showcase of paintings made by Syrian children depicting the harsh realities of their lives. The screening of Born in Syria was a great success, with every seat filled with both British and Syrian attendees of all ages.

Morgan and West: Parlour Tricks Review

Morgan and West: Parlour Tricks Review
‘Magicians, time-travellers and all round spiffing chaps’

Performed in Trowbridge Town Hall on the 10th November 2017, Parlour Tricks was a magic/comedy show starring the time travelling magicians Rhys Morgan and Robert West. The pair met when they studied together at Oxford in the late nineteenth century and discovered a shared love of deception. Since then, Morgan and West have grown increasingly popular and have appeared on the modern day television shows The Slammer, The Next Great Magician and Penn and Teller: Fool Us (they fooled them). When they teleported themselves (and their drawing room) from the past to perform their shenanigans before a Trowbridge audience, it was no surprise that the show was a sell-out.

To the Flame the Moth Said: Review
‘Four characters find themselves immersed in darkness, Inside them a whisper calls; And to the flame they go.’

The premiere of To the Flame the Moth Said was performed as part of Trowbridge Arts celebration of dance. It was an especially important event as it marked a return to her roots for Amy Foskett, head of Amy Foskett Dance. Amy originally began her career in Trowbridge’s Arc Theatre as a teenager before taking her training further in Swindon. She gained her BA at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London, where she now lives and works, specialising in classical ballet, contemporary dance and dance theatre. For her visit, Amy was joined by dancers Hazel Firth, Jennifer Robinson and Brita Grov, all of whom are based in London.
