Green Border15

Directed by Agnieszka Holland | Poland | 2023 | 2h 32m | Polish & Arabic w/ English subtitles | Starring Jalal Altawil, Maja Ostaszewska, Behi Djanati Atai, Tomasz Wlosok, Dalia Naous

In the treacherous and swampy forests straddling the border of Belarus and Poland, refugees from the Middle East and Africa are drawn in by government propaganda falsely promising an easy path to the European Union. Trapped in a tangled web of misinformation, conflicting interests, and exploitation, they become mere pawns in a geopolitical power play. Three decades after her Oscar-nominated film Europa Europa, Agnieszka Holland constructs a complex, immersive, and deeply human narrative of the modern global humanitarian crisis.

Reviews

‘Green Border leaves us with a slight chink of optimism… It’s a hopeful coda to a stunning, harrowing film.’
★★★★★
Philip De Semlyen, Time Out

‘Green Border is a tough watch: a punch to the solar plexus. But a vital bearing of cinematic witness to what is happening in Europe right now.’
★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
