BAFTA Cymru: Cry Freedom (PG)

To celebrate 30 years since the film's release and the link to us as the first film the BAFTA Cymru branch screened (in January 1988), we will be remembering our inaugural event with a screening of Cry Freedom. 

A BAFTA-winning (Best Sound, 1988) film directed by Richard Attenborough, set in late-1970s apartheid era South Africa. The film centres on the real-life events involving black activist Steve Biko and his friend Donald Woods. Denzel Washington stars as Biko, while actor Kevin Kline portrays Woods. Cry Freedom delves into the ideas of discrimination, political corruption, and the repercussions of violence.

+ The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film's producer Terence A. Clegg.

Acclaimed producer Terence Clegg's credits include Out of Africa, Shadowlands and The Jackal.
