Friday 1 June 2012, 7pm - 9pm
A unique opportunity to watch this critically acclaimed film and meet the lead actor, Manjinder Virk (Channel 4 Britz and ITV Monroe) and her brother, creative producer/ promoter, Hardish Virk who will be having a post-show discussion followed by questions from the audience.
As a portrayal of the late Bradford playwright Andrea Dunbar, this innovative film uses lip-synching techniques to give life to audio interviews telling the story of the tragic playwright (who was best known for her work on Rita, Sue and Bob Too). The Arbor was nominated for a BAFTA award for Outstanding Debut by a British Director, and won the Sutherland Trophy at the 2010 London Film Festival Awards. Manjinder Virk was also nominated for a British Independent Film Award for Best Actress and Best Newcomer for her role as Lorraine.
