When her father is wrongly arrested, Parvana disguises herself as a boy in order to support her family. With dauntless perseverance, Parvana draws strength from the stories her father told her, and ultimately risks her life to discover if he is still alive.

All proceeds from the screenings will be donated to the Afghanistan & Central Asian Association who provide support, skills and knowledge to help their communities live and prosper in the UK.

EVENT CINEMA: Oasis Knebworth 1996
 108m | 15

'Oasis Knebworth 1996' is the story of the special relationship between Oasis and their fans that made the largest concert of the ‘90’s possible. It is told entirely in the moment through the eyes of the fans who were there, built around extensive, and never before seen archive concert and backstage footage from the event, with additional interviews with the band and concert organisers. Directed by Grammy Award-winner Jake Scott, this is a joyful and at times poignant cinematic celebration of one of the most iconic live concert events of the last 25 years, driven entirely by the music, and the fans' own experiences of that monumental weekend.
Liam Gallagher said: “Knebworth for me was the Woodstock of the 90’s. It was all about the music and the people. I can’t remember much about it, but I’ll never forget it. It was Biblical.” Noel Gallagher simply said: “I can’t believe we never played Rock ‘n’ Roll Star!”

The brand-new feature-length documentary, directed by Jake Scott from extensive concert and exclusive never before seen footage, see these era defining shows through the eyes of the fans who were there.
