Future plans TEN-YEAR-OLD MERCEDES QUADROS, daughter of the Uruguayan Ambassador came to the Catholic Film Institute in Lansdowne Road, London, on Tuesday to see herself playing the principal part in a charming short feature film entitled "Amelia and the Angel."
The audience had come at the invitation of Col. F. J. Milton. Supreme Knight, and Chairman of the C.F.I. to see some of the latest work of the Institute.
The programme included the filmstrip "Holy Week and Easter" photographed by Ken Russell (who also made "Amelia and the Angel") and with script and production by Fr. Edmund Jones, 0.S.B., of Cockfosters.
The Institute regards this as the most important teaching filmstrip in its collection.
The work of the Institute will be concerned mainly for the moment with the classification of films as before into the various categories under the direction of Fr. Connell of Brompton Oratory who will have the assistance of a panel of priests. The Institute will also provide filmstrips and see to the distribution of 16mm. feature films. Applications should be made direct to the Secretary, Mr. A. G. Evans at 11 Lansdowne Road, London, W.11.
