The 2015 Palme d'Or winner from French director Jacques Audiard appropriately gets a preview screening at London's Cine Lumiere on 30 March.
To escape the civil war in Sri Lanka, a former soldier, a young woman and a little girl pose as a family. They end up settling in a suburb of Paris. But the daily violence Dheepan confronts quickly reopens his war wounds.
The preview screening will be preceded by an introduction by Dr. Julia Dobson, Reader in Contemporary French Film and Performance at the University of Sheffield.
115 mins In Tamil, French & English with English subtitles.
