Regent Street Cinema Presents: Warriors

Cricket and Maasai Warriors captured in this captivating doc

"Hugely engaging and quietly potent."

- Empire Magazine
Take a step into British cinematic history at the Regent Street Cinema. Britain's oldest cinema, it was the first place in the country to ever show moving pictures. It kickstarted British cinema with a screening of Cinematographe in 1896. Now, you can catch a special screening of the Western classic, Once Upon A Time In The West. Under the shadow of Mount Kenya, a tribe of Maasai fear for their future. With the cultural tradition of female mutilation being performed on girls as young as six and with HIV/AIDS casting a constant dark shadow, the community must change or perish. That change is coming in the form of some young Maasai Warriors who have remarkably formed a cricket team. This is their story. "A rigorously journalistic yet playful take on an underrepresented issue." – Little White Lies "Warriors documents the splendid journey of a cricket team of Masai warriors." – The Times Certificate: 12A. Running time: 87 minutes.
