PUBLISHED: 17:00 20 May 2019


Screening could be cancelled if there is not enough interest

A screening of the film Kinetics will be put on in Kilmington on Friday.

The film is about a middle-aged woman recently diagnosed with Parkinson's and a teenager who is in to Parkour, or free running.

Described as 'quite a hard-hitting story', it was written by Sue Wylie, from Dorchester, from her own experiences.

The play which Sue wrote was hugely successful and led to a film being produced in which Sue plays herself.

The film has been highly rate, and Parkinson's UK has been invited to show it at the World Parkinson's Congress in Kyoto, Japan, on June 6.

Parkinson's UK challenged all its branches and social groups to hold a local screening of the film called and the Axminster Parkinson's Social Group took up the challenge and booked The Beacon, the Baptist Church, in Kilmington, with a view to screening the film on Friday, May 24.

Although ticket sales have not been good, the group is giving it one more push, so the screening does not have to be cancelled.

Anyone intending to turn up on the night is asked to either go to or call Archway Bookshop, in Axminster, on 01297 33744, or call Pauline Beviss on 01297 33903 to say how many tickets are required.
