Win a prize bundle with Jacques Audiard’s DHEEPAN

11 April 2016
Dheepan Still

From acclaimed director Jacques Audiard (A Prophet, Rust and Bone) and winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes Film Festival, the powerful story of DHEEPAN will arrive in cinemas on 8 April. Ahead of its release, we have three prize bundles to giveaway including some of Jacques Audiard’s previous films such as A Prophet, Rust and Bone and A Self Made Hero plus a DHEEPAN poster.

From acclaimed director Jacques Audiard comes the powerful story of Dheepan, a Sri Lankan Tamil warrior who is forced to flee to France to escape the civil war, posing as a family with a woman and young girl he has never previously met.

Finding work as a caretaker of a housing block in the suburbs of Paris, Dheepan works to build a new life and home for his ‘wife’ and ‘daughter’, but the daily violence he confronts quickly reopens the violence from his past, and he is left fighting for their livelihood, and eventually their lives.
