Exclusive Private Film Screening of ‘Bhopal A Prayer for Rain’ in support of the Bhopal Medical Appeal
I have teamed up with the Bhopal Medical Appeal again, bringing you an exclusive screening of “Bhopal A Prayer For Rain”, a 2014 epic that, despite rave reviews, has not yet received UK distribution. I am among the lucky few, and saw the film during one of my previous events at the Indian Film Festival, The Hague. I can assure you, it’s not to be missed.
Starring Martin Sheen, Mischa Barton, Kal Penn and a powerful ensemble cast, “Bhopal A Prayer For Rain”, directed by Ravi Kumar, is an epic, ‘whodunnit’ that exposes the shocking events that led to the biggest man made industrial disaster in history. As many as 10,000 people were killed in one night and for those that did survive, the tragedy had just begun.
This screening, hosted by the Bhopal Medical Appeal on Tuesday 27 January, will be preceded by a short talk about my recent Arts Council England funded project ‘Bhopal: Facing 30’. The Bhopal Medical Appeal is a Brighton based charity that campaigns and fundraises for the survivors of the Bhopal tragedy and victims of the ongoing disaster, and have been loyal supporters of Bhopal: Facing 30. My unreserved thanks to them, and to Fabrica, who have kindly supported this event.
