Event Description

Bol broke box office records in Pakistan; in India it was released against Bodyguard and struggled to compete. 

Bol brings the question of women’s rights to the forefront, with a story of a Pakistani woman on death row (Humaima Malik) pleading to tell the tale of how she got there before she is executed.

Though not a perfect film, it’s a powerful one, ultimately raising some issues rarely talked about in mainstream cinema – ranging from homophobia, gender discrimination, domestic abuse, poverty and the problems of religious orthodoxy.

The film is free to Screen Wood Green members. Membership is £5 for the year.
