Women Behind the Wheel + Q&A12A
Two British women in their twenties take on the gruelling 3000km drive along Central Asia’s Pamir Highway – the second highest international road on Earth, running from the southern Uzbek deserts to all the way to Kyrgyzstan’s vibrant capital, Bishkek. Their route brings them to the doorsteps of women from all walks of life, revealing a women’s movement that’s had as many ups and downs as the drive itself – from a group training Tajikistan’s first ever female trekking guides to a feminist collective running workshops on sexual pleasure.
Join us for a one-off screening followed by a Q&A with the film’s directors Hannah Congdon and Catherine Haigh.
‘In an age of Skyscanner and Ryanair, Haigh and Congdon have accomplished a vanishing feat: a true adventure. Not only is Women Behind the Wheel insightful and educational, the women they meet on their way are inspiring in their resilience, their warmth, and their courage.’
Ellie Dolliver, The Indiependent

Plan your visit
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!
