Based on Sarfraz Manzoor’s memoir Greetings from Bury Park, this inspirational drama tells the story of Javed (Viveik Kalra) a British teen of Pakistani descent, growing up in Luton in 1987.  Amidst the racial and economic turmoil of the times, he writes poetry to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father. But when a classmate introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, Javed sees parallels to his 

working-class life in ‘The Boss’s powerful lyrics.

From writer/director/producer Gurinder Chadha.

Presented by Keighley Film Club in partnership with Keighley Picture House.
