Our next film: Dheepan

Our next film, on Tuesday 7 March at 19:45, is Dheepan, a topical and humane film about immigration. Directed by Jacques Audiard, who gave us the excellent Rust And Bone, it tells the story of a Tamil Tiger fighter who escapes from Sri Lanka as the civil war is nearing its end. He takes with him two strangers, a woman and a young girl, hoping that they will be able to pose as a family and thereby gain easier access to Europe. Finding work as the caretaker of a run-down housing block in the Paris suburbs, he is quickly confronted by violence as he struggles to protect the vulnerable pair he brought with him.
