London Premiere – Honour
An urban thriller starring Paddy Considine and rising star Aiysha Hart, Honour (dir. Shan Khan, UK) focuses on a young British Muslim girl who plans to run away with her Punjabi boyfriend – prompting her family to enlist a bounty hunter in a desperate bid to save face. Showing in conjunction with East End Film Festival’s Cutting East youth festival, this London Premiere includes a panel discussion about honour killings within British-Asian communities.
The screening was then followed by a Q&A session panelled by a few of Cutting East’s very own programmers. With the screening jam-packed in attendance, those who remained were able to present their questions to Shan Khan and the two promising actors, who were also in attendance – Shubham Saraf and Nikesh Patel.
