Film about town’s famous son shown in his creation
THE first Middleton showing of a film about the life of Edgar Wood has been hailed a success.
More than 300 people attended the premiere of the documentary ‘Edgar Wood - A Painted Veil’ at Long Street Methodist Church, which was designed by the architect turned artist.
The film has won positive reviews, including from the MP for Middleton and Heywood, Liz McInnes.
Film makers from the Heritage Film Group carried out painstaking research to create the film.
They have also secured a screening of the film at HOME in Manchester city centre and are in talks for a screening at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London.
The Lottery funded project sheds new light on the life of Edgar Wood.
