‘Selma’ chronicles the historical events of 1964, centred on the marches at Selma led by Martin Luther King as part of the civil rights campaign following the murder of four black girls in Birmingham, Alabama, and the attempt to obtain voting rights for black citizens. Amnesty International campaigns for victims of human rights abuses wherever in the world they occur, and also on behalf of campaigners who, like Martin Luther King, often work at great personal risk, for the rights of others.
This spring, the Norwich Amnesty group has lined up an excellent trio of films to be screened at Cinema City as part of our film season.
We’ve selected films that pull no punches about the abuses to human rights that have occurred in the past and remind us that today human rights have never been more threatened.
In order for each of these screenings to go ahead, we need to sell a minimum of 22 tickets per film by ten days before each screening.
So if you’d like to come along to any or all of these films, please be sure to book your tickets as soon as possible.
