About the event

We invite you to a special screening of The Gravedigger’s Wife paired with an authentic Somali finger food experience from The Somali Kitchen Bristol. This event celebrates Djiboutian culture through film and food. Attendees will be treated to a pre-screening food showcasing flavours from the Horn of Africa, providing perfect context for this Somalian drama. The event is hosted together with Somali Kitchen Bristol and Stroud Community Agriculture.

Hailed as “visually captivating” and “deeply moving,” The Gravedigger’s Wife intimately captures the personal toll of poverty in Djibouti City through its compelling lead performances and evocative imagery. Praised at numerous film festivals, including wins for Best Film and Best Actor at the Pan African Film Festival, the film has captivated both audience and critics.

Join us for this exclusive look and culinary experience at Trinity. The event begins at 2pm with finger food provided by The Somali Kitchen, followed by the screening with an audience Q&A. We look forward to transporting your palate and emotions to the rich culture of the Horn of Africa through The Somali Kitchen’s delicious cooking and the powerful storytelling of The Gravedigger’s Wife.
