Event description

Description

The Speakeasy and The New Zealand Human Rights Commission are coming together once again to hold another special free screening. This time, it’s A United Kingdom.

Amma Asante’s film centers on Prince Seretse Khama of Botswana’s relationship with Ruth Williams, an English clerk at Llyods; and the controversy it stirred at the dusk of the British Empire.

Come along to the Lighthouse Cuba at 6:15pm where we can catch up, have a drink, and talk about the movie at hand – the screening begins at 6:30pm. Click on the "Register" button to get your free ticket.

"In bringing a little-told chapter of history to a wider audience at a time of ethnic tensions in the UK and abroad, Asante should be applauded; she remains a force for good..."
