The picture house aired the video in support of humanitarian and environmental charity Tree Aid over the weekend.

The film told the story of Awa Adouabou who lives in Burkina Faso in West Africa, who went from struggling to feed her family to setting up a women’s enterprise to protect the area’s woodlands from deforestation.

The cinema’s event was in collaboration with the charity launching its She Grows appeal, which aims to support 1,000 women to reverse the effects of deforestation, climate change and poverty in Mali.

A spokesman for the Curzon said: “It’s fantastic to see a organisation having such a big impact on the lives of people living in some of the harshest conditions on earth.”
