Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival presents BRICK LANE, introduced by a discussion with director Sarah Gavon,  journalist Momtaz Begum-Hossain, and writer Monica Ali.

Director Sarah Gavron's (Rocks, Suffragette), BAFTA winning debut feature tells of Nazneen (Tannishtha Chatterjee), whose mother always told her she was a born survivor. Trapped within the four walls of her small flat in East London, in a loveless marriage with the middle aged Chanu, Nazneen however fears her soul is quietly dying. Hearing stories of her sister's carefree life back in Bangladesh, Nazneen struggles to accept her lot, and tries to plough on with her life, that's until a handsome and hotheaded young Market trader comes knocking at her door. Actor Tannishtha Chatterjee gained international notoriety with this controlled, yet commanding central performance.
