Event description

Description

In order to mark Refugee Week (which runs 17-23 June) Kent Refugee Action Network (KRAN) is hosting a gala screening of the charming film, Le Havre, which tells the tale of a community coming together to support a young refugee boy. The event will start at 6.30pm with special guest speaker Siobhán De Jonghe from Refugees at Home and the film will start at 6.55pm prompt. Don't miss this opportunity to see a cinematic masterpiece and do some good at the same time.

Plot summary: In this warmhearted portrait of the French harbor city that gives the film its name, fate throws young African refugee Idrissa (Blondin Miguel) into the path of Marcel Marx (André Wilms), a well-spoken bohemian who works as a shoeshiner. With innate optimism and the unwavering support of his community, Marcel stands up to officials doggedly pursuing the boy for deportation. A political fairy tale that exists somewhere between the reality of contemporary France and the classic cinema of Jean-Pierre Melville and Marcel Carné, Le Havre is a charming, deadpan delight. In French with subtitles.
