Based on real events, this new film by Academy Award-nominated Polish director Agnieszka Holland ("In Darkness", "Europa Europa", "Burning Bush", "House of Cards") tells the story of a Welsh investigative journalist Gareth Jones as he breaks the news in the western media of the famine in the Soviet Union in the early 1930s.
Film will be shown in English only with no subtitles
“An intrepid crusader against actually fake news, he's very much a hero for our divided moment”
- Daily Telegraph
“Holland has unearthed a too-little-known story and presents it beautifully”
– The Arts Desk
"[Holland] has a real story to tell – a story that isn’t told enough – and a single, compelling and likable character with which to tell it. It’s a picture with sinew and strength."
- The Guardian
Screening supported by Cinema for All's Collaborate programme with simultaneous screenings at Brighton Community Cinematheque and Pendle Social Cinema.
