Rupert and Jan Grey are well known to Bedales. Their three daughters were students here and the youngest, Carmody, also taught philosophy at Bedales for some years. They are an inspiring couple who have combined successful careers in law, photography and the probation service with family expeditions to remote parts of the world including the heart of Borneo, the high Pamirs, the Arctic tundra and the great mangrove swamps by the Bay of Bengal.
‘Romantic Road’ is a film of their latest adventure and produced by Sharon Stone. We join them motoring across rural India in their battered 1936 Rolls Royce, falling into company with tea-wallahs and maharajahs, dodging tribal conflicts and battling with border-officials to get to a photography and human rights festival in Bangladesh. Join us for a special screening of ‘Romantic Road’ introduced by Rupert Grey and followed by a question and answer session with him and Jan about the making of the film.
Proceeds will go towards the John Badley Foundation.
