Palma charity is given the star treatment

FILM highlights the sterling work of the volunteers.

Films about the homeless and those in need are few and far between but a British woman and her colleagues at Palma Pictures have really pushed the boat out by producing a short film that will help save lives this Christmas. 

Jennifer Sykes has been a beacon of light in Mallorca, collecting food for the hungry in Palma for three years. Always on the look-out for fresh ideas to help the local community, Jennifer brainstormed with friends and decided to create the film to highlight the work of Operation Kilo, a long-standing campaign to collect food for the Caputxins Convent.

She told the Euro Weekly News: “Initially the idea was to film a documentary about the wonderful job that Caputxins does. However, after talking to the director Aaron Dormer and Director of Photography, Juanjo Martí, we decided to make a short film which will hopefully encourage people to donate to either the Caputxins project or any other worthy cause on the island.”


The film was shot last Saturday December 5 with a cast of friends and family and the crew donating their services, and Palma Pictures generously lending equipment and studio facilities. 

Dolores, lead volunteer from the convent, said: “Every December, Jenny and her colleagues collect for those in need and this year they have gone beyond all expectations. I am delighted with them and can’t wait to see the film.”

If you wish to participate in this good cause, please contact Jennifer on 971 226 232.
