Films Against Borders- TONIGHT!

26 Feb


On Thursday March 5th we will be showing the Iranian film Baran (Rain) by Majid Majidi. The film is dedicated to the Afghan refugees who still suffer displacement and wars, and deals with the harsh realities of borders and their effects on those whose lives are disrupted and diverted by them. At the director’s request the film is dedicated to the people of Gaza and all proceeds will go to the International Solidarity Movement:

Starts 7.30pm £4/3 free to refugees and asylum seekers

The Venue
The Star And Shadow Cinema is an entirely volunteer run space. It is in Battlefield, Newcastle Upon Tyne, on the corner of Stepney Bank and Crawhall Road, opposite the Tanners pub.

The nearest Metro station is Manors. Turn right out of the station, and turn right up New Bridge Street. You’ll see us on the right about 5 minutes walk up the road, next to the Tanners.
Buses 6B, 12, 22, 39, 40, 62, 63, 106, 301, 302 all stop just around the corner. Ask for the New Bridge Street stop, or mention the Tanners pub.
There is no car park at the cinema but if you arrive by bike you can park and lock it inside the building.
