On Wednesday, February 22 at 7.30pm, Andrea Arnold’s 2017 film ‘American Honey’ which won the Jury Prize at last year’s Cannes Film Festival.

‘American Honey’ is a vivid and thought-provoking tale about a struggling teenager who abandons her small home town and runs away with a travelling sales crew who drive across the Midwest selling subscriptions door to door.
