Reels of history: ‘On the Bride’s Side’ screening

22 November, 2017, 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

On the Bride’s Side is a timely look at the refugee crisis. Winner of Venice International Film Festival’s Human Rights Nights Award, it is an unexpected take on the immigrant road movie. In this film, a Palestinian poet and an Italian journalist meet five Palestinians and Syrians in Milan who have fled the war in Syria. They help them complete their journey to Sweden by faking a wedding. With one friend dressed up as the bride, and others dressed as wedding guests, they cross half of Europe on a four-day journey of three thousand kilometres.

This film will be introduced by the University of East Anglia’s Refugee History team and will be followed by a Q&A with Salah El Nagar, a Norwich-based writer, activist and refugee from Egypt, whose work challenges misconceptions about Islam and promotes freedom and human rights.
