ON THE BRIDE’S SIDE is a timely look at the refugee crisis. Winner of the Venice International Film Festival’s Human Rights Nights Award, it is an irreverent and unexpected take on the immigrant road movie. The film will be introduced by the Refugee History team and will be followed by an informal talk by Salah El Nagar, a Norwich-based writer, activist and refugee from Egypt. We will discuss issues raised in the film and think about how we can challenge misconceptions about Islam and promote human rights. This film is screened in conjunction with Cinema City Education.

The Being Human Festival is the UK’s only national festival of the humanities. It is led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the British Academy.
