GLORIA IN THE GALLERY PRESENTS A FREE SCREENING OF MOLLY DINEEN'S FILM, HOME FROM THE HILL.

Elisabeth Frink's childhood hero was her father Ralph Frink, who had served in the colonial army in India and was away for much of her childhood due to World War II and Post-War reconstruction. Her parents met and married in India, and her mother had spent long periods away from her family as a child due to her father's colonial service.

Molly Dineen's documentary, Home From the Hill, chronicles Lieutenant-Colonel Hilary Hook's last days in colonial service in Kenya and the challenges of readjusting to life in an unfamiliar England.

Running time: 55 minutes

Molly Dineen is one of Britain’s most acclaimed contemporary documentary filmmakers, known for her intimate and probing portraits of British individuals and institutions, and recipients of numerous accolades, including BAFTA, Grierson and RTS awards for documentary (source: Wikipedia).
