Euro-Mernet Film Club aims to raise awareness on social issues and promote the cultural heritage of diverse communities by screening films from around the world, with particular focus on Mediterranean, Middle East, and the entire Europe.
On Tuesday, 6th June 2017, from 7pm to 9pm they will be screening their next film at The Blue Man (8 Queens Road, Brighton, BN1 3WA). The film is a drama/thriller “I am Slave”, inspired by the true story of Mende Nazer, who spent years as a slave in Sudan and London. Here are a few comments/reviews on this film:
“Powerful, mesmerising” – The Sunday Times
“Deeply affecting” – The Telegraph
At the end of the film screening, they will make a brief presentation on anti-slavery movements, women’s rights and gender equality groups in the UK and across the world – throughout the history and today. They will also distribute free publications to take away, and a list of national and global actions on this subject.
They will also pay tribute to Susan B. Anthony, the women’s rights activist and a leader of the Anti Slavery Movement in the USA. She was arrested on 6th June 1872 for demanding voting rights for women. She had powerful words, such as this one: “Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less.”
The films Euro Mernet are usually social comedies, satirical pieces, documentaries and similar independent productions. Sometimes the film screenings are followed by a talk by a director/producer/actor/actress themselves and/or a discussion between the guests on the film.
All events, including the film screenings, are FREE. Everyone is welcome to join Euro-Mernet Film Club and enjoy watching films together with us.
