KEIGHLEY Film Club’s last offering of the year at the Picture House cinema is drama The Other Side Of Hope.

The movie, which has English subtitles, won prestigious awards at the New York, Toronto and Berlin film festivals.

Club spokesman Alan Watkinson said: ““At this time of year when concern for the less fortunate is at its greatest, it is appropriate that our Christmas screening should focus on a humanitarian issue.

“The plight of a refugee in Finland is intertwined with a local businessman aiming to build an embryonic business. Both have hope for a new future as the film unfolds.”

The film is directed, written produced by leading Finnish filmmaker Ari Kaurismaki whose notable work includes Light in the Dusk, The Man Without a Past and Le Havre.

Syrian stowaway Khaled lands in Helsinki, and salesman Wikstrom leaves his wife after a large win at poker which enables him to buy a faded restaurant.

The Other Side of Hope will be screened on December 17 at 6pm. It is open to the public.
