**I will attend Q&A for the 6:45PM screening**

The number of the audience attending the weekend screenings will have a significant influence on whether the film gets invited to other cities for future screenings. So, please please please bring as many people as you can to those screenings! THANK YOU!

The Guardian published a wonderful article about the film. Please have a read, and share it with the people around you.
