slider top

Far From the Tree, directed by Rachel Dretzin and based on Andrew Solomon’s award-winning, critically acclaimed book, Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity, follows families meeting extraordinary challenges through love, empathy, and understanding. This life-affirming documentary encourages us to cherish loved ones for all they are, not who they might have been.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Andrew Solomon.

Tickets go on sale on Thursday, February 6, 2020. To purchase tickets, please visit the Curzon Cinema website.

This event is part of HRWFF 2020, the Human Rights Watch Film Festival, which screens films in over twenty cities around the world throughout the year. The Festival bears witness to human rights violations in direct storytelling and exposé form, and provides a forum for courageous individuals on both sides of the lens to empower audiences with the knowledge that personal commitment can make a difference.
