Join us for the second of our Q-RATED! #QueerHorrorNights at The Castle Cinema: Kimberly Peirce’s CARRIE (2013) Sunday 10 April 14:00. We’ll be donating a % of box office & inviting audience cash donations for WISH, a women’s mental health charity based in Tower Hamlets.

PRAYERS FOR THE STOLEN d. Tatiana Huezo, 2022 + Virtual Q&A with the director presented by CASA and MUBI at The Castle Cinema (06 APR 18:30):

“Loosely adapted from Jennifer Clement’s 2014 novel of the same name, PRAYERS FOR THE STOLEN follows the lives of three girls in the rural village of Guerrero, which is dominated by the violent presence of the local drug trade and the threat of human trafficking. Told from a unique child’s eye perspective, Huezo’s film addresses the increasing issues surrounding Mexico’s “disappeared” individuals.” (CASA)
