Amhurst Republic welcomed new citizens last night, footballers for a change. On Saturday 23 June, we hosted a fund raising event for an incredible film project Over The Wall.
We met new people, danced on the magical tunes of Bayir Ensemble who played live Anatolian music and we ate tasty food prepared mostly by our hairy chef Abou Hurst.
Over The Wall is a brilliant and touching film about the journey of Soas University Football team transformed by the events they witness in Egypt and Palestine. Check their website and facebook page and follow them on twitter @walksoflifefilm to know about upcoming preview screenings.
The surprise live performances were this time by our resident actor Raz and a talented poet whom you should look out for James Massiah.
