Join us for this special Cinemania screening in partnership with Cutting East, with a post-film Q&A with BAFTA winning director Bruce Goodison.
Leave to Remain is an inspirational coming of age drama that delves into the unseen world of teenage asylum seekers in the UK. Omar, a charismatic Afghan teenager, is at the precarious juncture of having his refugee status decided. The arrival of a boy from back home threatens to change everything. Forced into a position where the outcome may be the difference between life and death, his only options are to tell the unbelievable truth or to tell a good story.
Featuring a soundtrack by Mercury Award-winners Alt-J, this bold debut feature from BAFTA winner Bruce Goodison, is brought to life by powerful performances from emerging talent and young refugees supported by acclaimed actor, Toby Jones.
