The internationally acclaimed screenwriter and film-maker Tony Grisoni presents In This World, the outstanding docudrama he wrote and made with director Michael Winterbottom, winner of the Berlin Film Festival Golden Bear in 2002.
This acclaimed film follows the arduous journey made by two young men from the Shamshatoo camp in northern Pakistan to London in hope of a better life. Using young non-professional Afghan actors and shot on small digital cameras in natural light, In This World is 'an urgently realist account of the grim commerce in human beings' (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian) that remains vitally relevant 15 years on.
The evening will be hosted by Gareth Evans, film curator at the Whitechapel Gallery.
