Bastards Documentary Film

Bastards Documentary Film: Every child deserves a future. Bastards tells the moving and uplifting story of an illiterate young woman who took on tradition, her own family and the Moroccan legal system for the sake of her daughter. This is a gripping, poignant and humorous documentary that reflects on a society determined to modernise its attitudes to women. Director Deborah Perkin was the first person to film in a Moroccan family court and lived in a Casablanca slum to be close to her subjects. This event is hosted by Basira and will be followed by a Q+A with Perkin and Ahlam Akram. Taking place on 29 July, 2015 at the P21 Gallery, 21 Chalton Street, London NW1 1JD.
