In 1921 D.H.

After the film screening there will be the opportunity to meet with Director Daniele Marzeddu, and to visit the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum, where there will be an exhibition of photography from the film, a free glass of wine and the chance to see the historic rooms of Lawrence’s childhood home.
