The British Council proudly opens the festival with ‘How I live now’ - the brilliant adaptation of the 2004 novel of same name by Meg Rosoff which won the British Guardian Children's Fiction Prize and the American Printz Award for young-adult literature. The film will not only satisfy the audience with beautiful landscapes of England, but also gives them a great taste of British modern literature. This film is directed by Oscar winning director Kevin Macdonald (One day in September, The last king of Scotland) with the captivating performance of Saoirse Ronan (Lovely Bones, Atonement…).
