Norwegian artist and activist Deeyah hosts a screening for her critically acclaimed film about honour killings at Free Word on March 6th 2013 in London.

Banaz: A Love Story

Free Word, 60 Farringdon Road, EC1R 3GA
Wednesday 6th March, 6:30pm

Free Word, ARTICLE 19 and Fuuse have great pleasure in inviting you to a screening of Banaz: A Love Story, 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.

Please RSVP to katie@freewordonline.com

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on March 6th.
