Protest, technology and the end of fear: the week ahead at the Frontline Club
This week there is an opportunity to hear from some of the key figures in the movement that swept President Hosni Mubarak out of office. On Wednesday the author and cultural commentator Ahdaf Soueif will be in conversation with the BBC’s Mishal Husain, looking back at the 18 days in Tahrir Square, the spirit of the Egyptian revolution and how it can be safeguarded.
On Sunday our screening is Restrepo – the Oscar nominated feature-length documentary by Frontline Club member Tim Hetheringon, which chronicles the deployment of a platoon of US soldiers in Korengal Valley in Afghanistan.
And don’t forget our Club Quiz on Tuesday – enter as an individual or as a team of six for an evening of entertainment hosted by David Dickinson.
