Rokpa Film Screening

TOP del.icio.us

Rokpa will be screening the film the “Intouchables” followed by a talk by Tom Soper (quadriplegic) and a delicious tea.

This French film is based on the true story of a quadriplegic who develops an unlikely friendship with his unorthodox and very likeable carer. Philippe is a millionaire who was paralysed from the neck down in an accident. Driss is a man recently out of jail for robbery, who inadvertently becomes Philippe’s caregiver. Their relationship is based on Driss’ confidence that Philippe will improve if he escapes his stuck-up lifestyle and samples freedoms beyond physical ability.

The film, which is both wonderfully humorous as well as poignant, has won numerous awards.
