Saturday evening saw the world premiere of one of the winners of the Pears Short Film Fund award at the UK Jewish Film Festival. The film, The Master of York, is set in the Jewish community of 12th century York. The Jews would have been brought to England from France and would have spoken Anglo-Norman. Congratulations to Professor Richard Ingham, Visiting Professor at the University of Westminster, for his masterly translation of the film’s script into Anglo-Norman, and to Dr Heather Pagan of the Anglo-Norman Dictionary at Aberystwyth and our colleague at Westminster, who acted as the voice coach for the actors who had to speak the Anglo-Norman lines.
