Film: “In This World”. Screening: Wed 26th March, Broadway Cinema @ 5.30pm
Winner of the Golden Bear, the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury and the Peace Film Prize at the 2003 Berlin International Film Festival, Michael Winterbottom’s ‘In This World’ tells the story of two Afghan cousins who embark on a refugee’s clandestine odyssey from Pakistan to London during the American bombings in Afghanistan.
