The councils of Hammersmith & Fulham, Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea are holding a free screening of Banaz: A love story as part of an event to raise awareness of forced marriage. This will be followed by a panel discussion of the movie, held by the Director Deeyah, which will include Diana Nammi, Director of IKWRO.

The film, which premiered at the Raindance Film Festival in London in September last year, documents the life of Banaz Mahmod. Banaz was killed by her uncle and father in London in 2006, after she left her violent and abusive husband, and began a relationship with a family friend.
