Remembrance of Things Passed

Upon the bridge at Winterbourne

Upon the bridge at Winterbourne

On a rare sunny day in mid June 2013 a short film was shot  with Parul Punjabi, a scholarship student in film studies at Birmingham University, at Winterbourne House & Garden, Edgbaston, Birmingham. The film, Remembrance of Things Passed will be shown at Winterbourne from February 2014. Much planning and days of preparation paid off as on the day as we were able to film  4 hours of footage which Parul expertly edited down to  22 minutes.  As Winterbourne is open daily it was difficult fielding visitors so that they were out of shot; I lost count of the number of times I said, “Excuse me, could you possibly…” The film features my daughter Sylvie Powis and Winterbourne gardener Phil Smith. Each were amenable and a joy to work with.
