The United Nations presents: Under The Wire

November 6 @ 5:30 pm

To mark the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists, The United Nations and the UK representation to the EU present:
UNDER THE WIRE
On 13 February 2012 war-correspondent Marie Colvin and photographer Paul Conroy entered war-ravaged Syria to cover the plight of civilians trapped in the besieged Homs, under attack by the Syrian army. Only one of them returned. Based on Conroy’s book Under the Wire, the film is a gripping account of the triumph of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming adversity.
This film is in English.
Runtime: 95 min
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion, which includes the director of the film, Chris Martin.
This is is a free event. A link to register will be added here when it becomes available.
