Bastartds (Film)

Bastards with Director Q+A: A film that follows the real story of the 14-year-old Moroccan Rabha El Haimer, who was forced into marriage with a man she’d never met and who later finds out that her traditional wedding has no legal status and that her daughter, Salma, is considered illegitimate. She then embarks on a heroic fight with the Moroccan judicial system to have her sham marriage recognised and her daughter legitimised. Hosted by Basira, screening will take place on 5 October, 2015 at the Tricycle Theater, followed by a Q+A with the director Deborah Perkin and Shereen El Feki (author of 'Sex and the Citadel').
