About this Event

Love Child offers a heart-breaking portrait of Leila and Sahand, an Iranian couple who are forced to flee for their lives from Tehran where their secret affair and illegitimate child are both considered crimes, punishable by death.

Together with their four-year old son Mani they take refuge in Turkey with dreams of a new life, seeking asylum to either Canada or the US. Intimately filmed over a five-year period, so intimately you often forget this is a documentary, we follow their brave quest to be safe together as a family.

Rating: 12A

Length: 1hr 52 mins

Director: Eva Mulvad, Lea Glob

Released: 2020

Language: Persian | Azerbaijani | Turkish | English

Event organised by and our hosts for the evening

Ren Bennett - I am a third year BA Film student at Brookes. I greatly appreciate the power that film has to represent and amplify the voices of marginalised people all over the world through both fiction and documentary. I want to use this platform to centre the voices of people who are not often listened to.

Angus Stanley - Year 1 MArchD student, specialising in Development and Emergency Practice. I completed my undergraduate studies at the Glasgow School of Art where I worked on a number of community projects focusing on community consultation, participation and youth work
