Actor Sean Harris, originally from Lowestoft, and Hannah Spirrett ( S-Club 7 and Primeval ) also appear in this edgy coming of age film, which premiered at Norwich s iconic Cinema City in May 2015. Written in Dust A silent glimpse of contemporary Beijing, in a tragic tale both old and new Two Norfolk villages are set to host a beautiful silent film, made for the modern age, and with roots which come from another rural community thousands of miles away in the fields of China. Written in Dust is the story of three young migrants who travel from their countryside home for the promise of a new and better life in the modern city of Beijing.

But the lure of the city and the oppression of love lead to a path of betrayal, corruption, heartache and ultimate tragedy. Shot with classic cinematic sensibility Written in Dust shows a rarely seen side of contemporary Beijing, with a powerful story that resonates universally. The film offers audiences a glimpse into the hidden world of this enigmatic city through a skilful blend of silent film, tragic story and specially composed live music.

Classical Chinese musician, Ling Peng and pianist and guitarist, Andy Middleton, provide an inspired live fusion of traditional Chinese instruments and modern music to underpin the story, which translates without need for words. This is the second chance to see this extraordinary film at Hilgay Village Hall , which was first screened in the summer of 2014, and takes place on Friday 12 th February at 7.30pm , before moving on to St. Mary s Church, Banham on Saturday 5 th March at 7.30pm .
