An acclaimed director and writer will be on hand to explain his film about celebrating difference and challenging prejudice at its premiere in Wisbech.
FREE follows the stories of four children as they explore family, friendship and what it means to be yourself.
The screening – at the Light Cinema in Wisbech on 17 November – will be followed by a Q&A session with the film’s director and actor Rikki Beadle-Blair.
FREE challenges gender stereotypes, homophobic bullying and language and illustrates the importance of celebrating difference. It has been designed to complement schools’ Key Stage 2 PSHE curriculum.
In 2002, Rikki’s documentary Roots of Homophobia, for BBC Radio 4 won the Sony Radio Academy Awards for Best Radio Feature.
