Description

Do you love watching great movies? Come and discover the best of World, Indie and Australian cinema at Waverley Library. Each month enjoy a movie on the big screen, handpicked by Library staff from Kanopy (our exciting new streaming service.)

Movie Synopsis:

Bilal is 17 years old, a Kurdish boy from Iraq. He wants to get to England to see his love who lives there. Bilal finally reaches Calais, but how do you cover 32 kilometers of the English Channel when you can't swim? The boy soon discovers that his trip won't be as easy as he imagined... The community of struggling illegal aliens in Calais is captured with authenticity, from the point of view of people who arrived there knowing nothing about France. This immigrant drama, with wonderful performances by the actors, is a strong story which uses documentary austerity and minimalist style to create a great emotional impact.

Closed captions available.

Morning Tea provided.

Free parking for the first 2 hours when you validate your parking ticket.
