Featuring My Beautiful Laundrette (1986)

Living with his alcoholic father in a shabby flat, Omar (Gordon Warnecke) is a teenager who wants to make something of himself. Omar is offered an opportunity by his uncle: manage a seedy laundrette. Omar hires old friend Johnny (Day-Lewis), an ex-member of a neo-fascist group, with dreams of turning the establishment into a veritable palace! But as Johnny's old friends take issue with their relationship, they must face racism, homophobia, violence and the politics of Thatcher's London head-on.

Join us for a screening of a film on Kanopy, then stick around after for a discussion of the feature. Snacks provided. Ideal for ages 18 and up.
