Norwegian artist and activist Deeyah will host a screening for her critically acclaimed film about honour killings at Free Word on 6th March 2013 in London.
The event has been organised by Free Word, ARTICLE 19 and Fuuse.
“Banaz: A Love Story” is a documentary that examines honour killings in the UK through the story of Banaz Mahmod, who was murdered by her own family in 2006.
Described by Jon Snow of Channel 4 News as "a completely shocking, revealing and timely insight into the scourge of 'honour killing'", “Banaz: A Love Story” is part of the Freedom on Film series exploring freedom of expression on film that Free Word recently launched with ARTICLE 19.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the film's director and producer Deeyah, the playwright Gurpreet Bhatti, international human rights campaigner Diana Nammi, and Detective Chief Inspector Caroline Goode, the senior Scotland Yard detective who investigated the case and brought the killers to justice.
“We do hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be a powerful and thought provoking evening,” Free Word says. Please RSVP to [email protected]
