FILM producer Hannah Leader is the speaker for the next Cuthman Lecture in Steyning.
Her topic will be The Greatest Story Ever Told and the lecture will be held in the Penfold Hall, Church Street, Steyning, on Wednesday, April 22, at 7.30pm.
Hannah Leader is an entertainment lawyer and owner of Big Book Media, a film production company based in Steyning.
She has worked in the film industry for more than 35 years, both as a lawyer in private practice, as one of the owners of Capitol Films, and as a producer and executive producer for television and feature film.
Biblical literacy is her particular passion and Hannah set up Big Book Media in 2009 as a supplement to her feature work ‘to bring the quality and rigor of that world to the job of filming the gospels’, and produce high-quality documentary programmes in that field.
Hannah was executive producer of major films such as Gosford Park and Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead, as well as several television series for the BBC, such as In the Footsteps of St Paul with David Suchet and The Story of Jesus. Big Book Media has recently completed filming all four gospels as full-length feature films.
The Cuthman Lectures are open to anyone interested, with a retiring collection.
