April discussions and screenings at the Frontline Club

Our screenings in April take us from the dark, bloody side of the mobile phone industry to the search for natural energy production and its consequences.

There are also fascinating stories of Danish soldiers stationed in Afghanistan, the struggle of a father and daughter in a West Bank village and the genocide of the Mayan people in Guatemala almost a quarter of a century ago.

This month’s In the picture will be looking at poverty and photography in the UK and we will be joined by Zarghuna Kargar, the founder and presenter of the ground breaking BBC World Service Trust radio show Afghan Woman’s Hour.

We will be discussing recent events in the Ivory Coast and asking what options there are for confronting leaders who refuse to step down. We will also be examining pro democracy movements and state media in light of the emergence of channels like Al Jazeera and the use of social media.

The topic up for discussion at our First Wednesday event will be announced on 30 March.

You can see the full programme on  the events section of the Frontline Club website and follow us on Twitter for updates.

You can also catch up on any events you missed on the Forum blog or download our podcasts on iTunes.
