Continuing our season of films promoting women film makers. We’ll be screening The Rider.

The event will be introduced by the Leader of the Council Cllr Judith Blake. Really pleased to be working alongside a growing number of partners, including Leeds City Council, Women’s Lives Leeds, Leeds University and A Listening Space.

The idea to show films by women writers/directors is rooted in four simple principles:

  • To show films made and/or directed by women.
  • To show films on every genre -not just films about women or aimed at women
  • To show films by women from all over the world
  • To show films that attract a diverse audience

 

Tickets available online and from HEART reception.

Based on his a true story, THE RIDER stars breakout Brady Jandreau as a once rising star of the rodeo circuit warned that his competition days are over after a tragic riding accident. Back home, Brady finds himself wondering what he has to live for when he can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose: to ride and compete.
