Description

Producer Alex Bescoby with Aunty Su

We Were Kings (2017) is an hour-long film from Grammar Productions and winner of the inaugural Whicker's World Foundation documentary award.

A rediscovery of Burma's lost royal family - deposed and exiled by Britain in the late 19th Century - the living descendants of King Thibaw now emerge from the shadows in a country experiencing seismic change.

"We Were Kings is a must-see film for anyone who wants to understand Burma today. Britain and Burma have an amazing shared history, and this film tells it with a subtlety and humour that will take you by surprise." Levison Wood - award-winning writer and explorer.

The Angus McDonald Trust is delighted to have obtained the rights to show this brilliant piece of film-making at a Spring 2018 fundraiser in the Royal Institution's spectacular Faraday Theatre in the heart of Mayfair in London, and is proud to have the film's producer Alex Bescoby and director Max Jones in attendance.

Included in this exclusive ticket will be attendance at the private drinks reception, with a complimentary glass of prosecco and canapes, as well as reserved seating in the wonderful Faraday Theatre for the screening itself.

There will be a cash bar both before and after the film and a fantastic raffle!
