Exclusive Screening of Despite the Falling Snow

17 April, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for this special screening of Despite the Falling Snow at Picturehouse Hackney, based on the acclaimed novel by Shamim Sarif.

Sit back and enjoy this breathtaking story of love and betrayal in Soviet Russia starring Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission Impossible), with title song by Ella Henderson and score by Oscar-winning composer Rachel Portman (Emma, Chocolate).

The film will be followed an exclusive Q/A with Shamim Sarif, the author, scriptwriter and director of the film, and the only British film director to adapt her own award winning novels for the screen, and the executive producer Hanan Kattan, in conversation with Vanity Fair’s associate editor and London correspondent Bridget Arsenault, plus a special guest to be announced.

There will also be an opportunity to meet Shamim as she signs copies of the novel, published by John Blake to coincide with the film’s release.
