Yeah, this week’s week six. I know I said it was week four last week. We decided to… um… skip week five. Yep. This week’s screening is still on, even though Friday is Good Friday, so make the most of the public holiday and come along – we’re showing The Fades.
The programme centres on an English teenager named Paul who is haunted by apocalyptic dreams that nobody can explain and is able to see spirits of the dead, known as the Fades, all round him. The Fades cannot be seen, smelt, heard or touched by other humans – they are what is left of humans who have died but not been accepted into Heaven. As such, the Fades left on Earth have become embittered and vengeful toward the human race.
Since it’s a short-length British series, we’ll be able to fit the whole thing into the screening, but it’s got hour-long episodes, so we’ll be a little pressed for time. With that in mind, we’re aiming to start at 5pm on the dot – if you don’t want to miss any of it, don’t be late. =) This Friday, ChemSci M18. Vice President James will be running the show, since I won’t be there.
Just a heads-up, we’ll be having a screening next week too, during the break, and we might also be going to see Pirates! A Band of Misfits. More info on that in next week’s e-mail.
