Tereza Stehlikova has generously agreed to screen her short film Trieste (made in collaboration with the writer Deborah Levy) at Offside Books on Wednesday 19 April, 2017.
The film blends the different personal histories of Trieste’s inhabitants, giving voice to various migrant communities (Jews, Greeks, Serbians) that have made their home here, whilst adding elements of their own religion and customs.
Illuminating these anecdotes are excerpts from Levy’s short story, Swallowing Geography, that reflect on the “nature of belonging and displacement, permanence and ephemerality, and the meaning of home.”

The screening will be followed by a discussion and refreshments!
All welcome – Fee: £6 (includes wine and nibbles). Please ask in advance if wishing to attend as space is limited.
