Event description

Description

Producer Alex Bescoby with Aunty Su

We Were Kings (2017) [trailer] 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

Cumbria-based charity The Angus McDonald Trust is delighted to show the Cumbrian premiere of this brilliant piece of film-making at a Spring fundraiser at Penrith's Rheged on May 9th 2018, and is delighted that the film's producer Alex Bescoby and director Max Jones willl be present for an exclusive Q&A.

Included in this exclusive ticket will be attendance at a private drinks reception (5pm), with a complimentary glass of prosecco and canapes, as well as reserved seating in the main Rheged theatre for the screening itself followed by an informal curry supper with wine.

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


All proceeds from the night will go to the work of The Angus McDonald Trust, an entirely voluntary-run charity, which supports adults and children living with HIV and TB in the slums of Yangon, the capital of Burma (Myanmar).
