Film Night Monday 18 March

The Idol

We are holding a special Film Night at the next meeting. Monday 18 March 8pm at Friends Meeting House, Horse Fair, Banbury OX16 0AH.

A “short” about Amnesty will be followed by a showing of:

“The Idol”

(2015; Director -  Hany Abu-Assad;  Arabic with English sub-titles)

This Palestinian film was the first feature film in decades to be made on location in Gaza. It is based on the inspiring true story of Mohammed Assaf, a young wedding singer determined to enter the "Arab Idol" TV show. 

"A jubilant air-punch of a movie" - The Guardian

"Emotional impact from an excellent young cast" - Variety

Admission: £5 (£2 for aged 18 and under) – tickets available on the door or from Banbury Amnesty Group members

Feel free to bring your own drinks and nibbles (non-alcoholic drinks please as the venue belongs to the Quakers)

Please bring family and friends.

 It will help our planning if you are able to let me know numbers attending – many thanks.
