The lives of Julia, a newly minted activist who has given up her comfortable life, Jan, a young border guard, and a Syrian family, intertwine in the treacherous and swampy forests that make up the so-called "green border" between Belarus and Poland where refugees from the Middle East and Africa trying to reach the European Union are trapped in a geopolitical crisis cynically engineered by Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko. 30 years after EUROPA EUROPA, three-time Oscar Nominee Agnieszka Holland's poignant new feature challenges us to reflect on the moral choices that fall to ordinary people every day.

The screening is a London Premiere of the film and will be followed by a Q&A with Agnieszka Holland.

An additional screening of Green Border will take place at Cine Lumiere on the 8th of March. Please see other listing.
