Featured attraction: PILI + Q&A with director Leanne Welham & producer Sophie Harman at Lexi Cinema (15 OCT 18:30): “With a compassionate and imaginative boldness, first-time British feature director Leanne Welham has shot a film about HIV in Tanzania. A drama that arose from what was originally a documentary project, PILI uses mostly non-professionals, many in just the same situation as their characters.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
