Ajji

Scroll down

UK Asian Film Festival


An old woman, fondly known as Ajji (meaning granny), finds her 9-year granddaughter dumped in a trash heap after having been assaulted near her slum. What follows is a bloody quest for revenge and an exploration into the horrors of toxic masculinity and how the poor have no access to justice, and are instead at the mercy of the corrupt police and those in power.


Ajji shows us the cold, brutal realities of the world we live in and presents us with the most unlikely of saviours to challenge the status quo and seek justice.


The screening will be preceded by a reception from 7pm and followed by a Q&A.
