It tells the story of the 1970 Miss World competition, and how a group of women disrupted the pageant in front of a world-wide audience of nearly 100 million viewers in what has now become a famous Women’s Liberation Movement protest.
Misbehaviour features an all-star cast with Keira Knightley, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jessie Buckley, Keeley Hawes, Phyllis Logan, Lesley Manville, Rhys Ifans and Greg Kinnear.
It is directed by BAFTA winner Philippa Lowthorpe, with a screenplay by Gaby Chiappe and Rebecca Frayn, from an original story by Frayn.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with members of the film making team and some of the actual protesters who disrupted the Miss World contest in 1970.
The 2020 Hebden Bridge Film Festival will take place from March 27 to 29 with new films from the UK and around the world.
“We are very excited to have a Q&A with Yorkshire based screen writer Gaby Chiappe and some of the original activists who inspired the film at this very special screening. Last year we sold out with Wild Rose and I fully expect to do the same again.”
Individual film tickets will be released on Friday 6 March when the full program comes out.
