A free screening and Question and Answer session with the director of a film described as a love letter to Granada is being hosted by the University’s Department of Languages and Cultures this month.
Students and the public are invited to see Granada Nights, showing from 11am at Storyhouse in Chester, followed by an hour-long Q&A with the director and producer, Abid Khan, on Thursday January 20.
The award-winning film tells the story of a British tourist who is stuck in Granada, Spain, with a broken heart. Feeling lost and abandoned, he befriends a group of young foreigners and crashes into the heart of the international student scene.
He pushes himself out of his comfort-zone and tries to restart his life but behind every corner is a reminder of his ex-girlfriend and his struggle to find closure.
As Abid will discuss further at the event, the film mixes documentary with fiction to create a real and authentic heartfelt examination on the process of self-discovery and an insight into intercultural experience and communication.
Reviewers have described it as “ambitious”, “stylish”, “emotional” and a “charming, beautifully poetic directorial debut”.
