Dheepan – In Cinemas Friday April 8 – The Career of Jacques Audiard


07 April 2016

From acclaimed director Jacques Audiard (A Prophet, Rust and Bone) comes the powerful story of Dheepan, a Sri Lankan Tamil warrior who is forced to flee to France to escape the civil war, posing as a family with a woman and young girl he has never previously met.

Finding work as a caretaker of a housing block in the suburbs of Paris, Dheepan works to build a new life and home for his ‘wife’ and ‘daughter’, but the daily violence he confronts quickly reopens the violence from his past, and he is left fighting for their livelihood, and eventually their lives.

Acclaimed director Jacques Audiard has won a number of prestigious awards for his work. His most recent release, Dheepan, is the story of a Sri Lankan Tamil warrior who is forced to flee to France to escape the civil war.

After winning the Palme d’Or at Cannes Film Festival last year, Dheepan will arrive in cinemas on 8 April and to celebrate the film’s release, we’re taking a look at Audiard’s incredible titles…
