The hubbub surrounding an African prince’s marriage to an Englishwoman, just as South Africa was enacting its apartheid laws to separate blacks and whites, becomes both a rousing love story and a triumphant call to justice in A United Kingdom. Based on Susan William’s book Colour Bar, it is a remarkable tale not only because it's a true story, but one where a romance influenced the outcome of British and African history.  Presented in association with Access Cinema. 

Tickets €7.
