SPAT’s first film for the year is Blinded by the Light.
It is based on Manzoor’s 2007 memoir Greetings from Bury Park: Race, Religion and Rock N’ Roll. Set in the town of Luton in 1987 Thatcherite Britain, the film tells the coming-of-age story of Javed, a British-Pakistani Muslim teenager whose life is changed after he discovers the music of Springsteen.
Screening Saturday the 13th March at the CWA Hall, at 7.30pm. For information and/or bookings ring Wayne on 0407 204 564.
