About Cinema on Sunday at Summerhall: Welcome
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
An ode to the abandoned immigrants trapped on the shores of Calais and the good Samaritans who take risks to help them, the ironically titled Welcome stars popular French actor Vincent Lindon as Simon and talented newcomer Firat Ayverdi as Bilal, in his first role, as the Kurdish refugee. Although Simon and Bilal develop a sincere father-son relationship, Simon takes the risk of being arrested for helping an illegal immigrant. Welcome has fuelled many debates with its politically controversial stance. Unanimously critically acclaimed it also became a box-office success and is the recipient of many awards.
