There's a lovely private cinema next to Balham station with seating for up to 25 Caramel Film Club Members and at 7.30 we will be holding a screening of:
"God Grew Tired Of Us" an award winning, critically acclaimed documentary, narrated by Nicole Kidman.
"Three young men leave behind a land in chaos to find new lives in a thoroughly different culture in this documentary. As the African nation of Sudan fell into political disarray near the dawn of the 21st century, with unspeakable violence following in its wake, thousands of refugees attempted to flee the country, making their way into Kenya in hopes of earning passage elsewhere. Jon Bul Dau, Daniel Abu Pach, and Panther Bior were three such people who eventually came to the United States, and filmmaker Christopher Quinn spent four years following them on their journey in a new and unfamiliar land. In God Grew Tired of Us, Quinn documents the young men as they struggle to build new lives for themselves, acquaint themselves with the "American" way of doing things, the difficulties of being black in a primarily white culture, and try to track down the friends and family they were forced to leave behind."
There'll be a chance to chill after the film and enjoy some of the drinks and cocktails.
All you need to do is simply RSVP with payment to secure a seat!
Peace & Love
