Dear Sheldon,
There was going to be a similar 'Zulu' event at the Aberystwyth campus. Have you heard any details on this?

Sounds great...but some of us live too far away to attend. Will this event be videotaped or otherwise documented? I'd love to hear all about it, especially any new information that comes to light.

I belive what you are on about is this The National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth
are on June the 13th opening their new
auditorium and they are running a competetion
called " Pick of The Wales Flick " and if your
choice is the winner your prize is a ZULU dvd
and a Zulu poster signed by Michael Caine.

For further details here is the e mail address
printed in our local paper:

Thanks, Mo. The Aberystwyth event should be worth going to. I'm told the screening at the conference on Saturday will not actually be on film, so anyone who wants the full 35mm big-screen experience should definitely attend on the 18th (why not both?).
