Event Notes

× The film tells the story of Javed (Viveik Kalra), a British teen of Pakistani descent growing up in the town of Luton, England, in 1987. Amidst the racial and economic turmoil of the times, he writes poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father. But when a classmate introduces him to the music of the Boss, Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in Springsteen s powerful lyrics. As Javed discovers a cathartic outlet for his own pent-up dreams, he also begins to find the courage to express himself in his own unique voice. Based on Sarfraz Manzoor s acclaimed memoir Greetings from Bury Park, Blinded by the Light is a joyful story of courage, love, hope, family and the unique ability of music to lift the human spirit. PG-13, 1h58m, Comedy, Drama, Music
