OTLEY Film Society is to screen a film about Parkinson’s to raise money for charity.

Kinetics tells the story of the unlikely friendship between a teenage boy who is into free running and a middle-aged woman with Parkinson’s.

A spokesperson for the film society said: “Kinetics is based on the remarkable true story of two people seemingly at polar opposites. As Rose tries to come to terms with her diagnosis, an unlikely friendship springs up when Lukas comes tumbling into her life. But will the bond between them be strong enough when things go wrong?”

Kinetics was written by Dorchester-based actor and writer Sue Wylie in

reaction to her diagnosis with early-onset Parkinson’s. As a stage play it has toured the South West and London, selling more than 1500 tickets and

receiving phenomenal feedback from audiences and medical professionals alike, for its bravery, honesty, humour and passion.

The screening of the film will be followed by a question and answer session together with a wide range of information about Parkinson’s.

The event starts at 7.30 pm on Wed, Sept 11 and tickets are available from Otley Courthouse box office or on-line at www.otleycourthouse.org.uk and cost £5. Doors open at 6.45 pm.

All profits will go to Parkinson’s UK.
