From director Anne Zohra Berrached, Copilot explores cultural differences, truth, faith, trust and delusion through the story of a young woman who discovers that her husband's secrets have earth-shattering consequences.

When sharp science student Asli meets charismatic Saeed in the mid '90s, it’s love at first sight. The lovers secretly marry, against Asli's mother's wishes, and Asli swears to be true to Saeed and never betray his secrets. Their future looks bright, but as the twenty-first century dawns, Saeed makes a decision that will not only shatter Asli’s dreams, but shake the whole world to the core.

The screening on Thursday 16th September will be a special Reclaim The Frame screening which includes a pre-recorded extended introduction hosted by Birds’ Eye View director-at-large Mia Bays with director Anne Zohra Berrached. Reclaim The Frame is a mission to bring ever-greater audiences to films by women to widen and enrich cinema’s perspective of the world, run by charity Birds’ Eye View, and backed by the BFI’s Audience Fund #ReclaimTheFrame
