Persepolis (12)
Please note Screening Postponed. Persepolis poster image

Persepolis (based on the graphic novel of the same name) is a movie about a young girl growing up in Iran in the ‘80s, during the Iranian Revolution. Super rebellious, she enjoys western music and style on the DL. She eventually moves to France for school where she is met with a new set of challenges, she is treated as an outsider. This movie is a groundbreaking classic and has a real relevence for many young Muslim women out there. The film will be followed by an informal discussion and refreshments will be provided.

Our BME Film Screenings with Cinema for All continue at the library this Autumn.

Provoked (15): Friday 15th October, 7pm to 9.30pm

Based on the true story of Kiranjeet Ahluwlaia who was sentenced in England in 1989 for the first degree murder of her physically abusive husband. The plight of Ahulwlaia was brought to the notice of the British Media by the untiring efforts of some women activists of Southall Black Sisters.

I am a Girl (15): Thursday 26th November, 11.30am to 2pm

In I am a Girl we meet girls from around the world as they come of age in the way their culture dictates. We see remarkable heart-warming stories of resilience, bravery and humor in this film which acknowledges that being born a girl means you are more likely to be subjected to violence, disease, poverty and disadvantage than any other group.

Bliss (15): Tuesday 8th December, 7pm to 9.30pm

Set amidst Turkey’s natural wonders, Bliss is a riveting tale about love, honour, freedom and redemption.
