WEDNESDAY 6:30 pm: Filmmaking and the Fog of War

WASHINGTON, DC, 2 February 2015 — Please join us this Wednesday evening for the screening of “No Fire Zone,” about human rights abuses during the 2009 offensive by the Sri Lankan military against the Tamil population. UK filmmaker Callum Macrae will share the innovative ways he garnered and continues to use footage to help pave the way to justice for thousands of civilians killed, wounded and missing during the final days of the Sri Lankan war.

Joining us for a panel discussion after the screening will be Carolyn Gallaher, Associate Professor at the School of International Service (SIS), and Juan E. Méndez, a Professor of Human Rights Law In Residence at the Washington College of Law (WCL).

Best regards,

Bill Gentile
