No children under 15 may watch this film.
As rated by visitors:

A valuable debut, shot with a fluent kind of poetry.

The Guardian

We are thrilled to welcome back North East-based filmmaker Tina Gharavi to present her brilliant BAFTA nominated feature debut . The film follows the eponymous Nasrine on a voyage of self-discovery when she is forced from her home of Tehran along with her brother Ali. Fleeing to the UK, Nasrine finds herself a reluctant exile in the North East, making new friends and forging a new path. But the pair’s future is far from certain...

This screening will included a Q&A with the film's director, Tina Gharavi.
