Sir John Hurt will be remembered at this special fundraising screening of Bong Joon Ho’s acclaimed dystopian sci-fi SNOWPIERCER.
Based on the French graphic novel ‘Le Transperceneige’ by Jacques Lob, SNOWPIERCER is set on a continually moving train carrying the last of the world’s population. The people are split along class lines until the lower classes at the back of the train revolt against the Elite at the front.
