Film Screening ‘Bol

February 20, 2012

Part 1: Thursday 23rd February, 1pm to 3pm;
Part 2: Thursday 1st March, 1pm to 3pm,
at Pollokshields Development Agency, 15 Kenmure St, Glasgow G41 2NT.

GWL are screening the film ‘Bol‘ an urdu term meaning ‘Speak’. Popcorn and soft drinks will be provided!  Based in the heart of Lahore, the story takes place in a house full of daughters, teeming with the vibrancy of life but restricted to bloom. It is the story of a girl who challenges the mindset that closes all doors of Light on women of the house and considers them nothing more than a machine that produces children. Bol is a roller-coaster of emotions. It questions the worth of a human being, be it a woman or a person born with a birth defect. It questions the authority of reproducing human beings into this world without taking responsibility of acknowledging their worth.
