"To Say Goodbye"

To be shown at The Phoenix Film Society, Union Films Cinema, University of Southampton Student’s Union, University Road, Southampton SO17 1BJ

Our showing of The Guernica Children in 2008 was one of our most popular films ever. We are delighted now to present this animation/documentary about the 4000 Basque children evacuated to Southampton in 1937.

A Q+A with Writer/Producer Izaskun Arandia and others involved in the film will follow the screening.
