Screening: The Siege + Q&A

The Siege of Sarajevo was the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare. In this award-winning new documentary acclaimed journalists Remy Ourdan and Patrick Chauvel masterfully capture the experiences of the city’s residents who experienced the siege firsthand. As these men and women recall memories of everyday life under the blockade, history interweaves with personal testimony to create a humanising portrait of battle and resistance.

BookNight with Dan O’Brien

For our members’ BookNight in November we are delighted to welcome the acclaimed playwright, poet, and librettist Dan O’Brien. He will give a reading from his book of poems War Reporter, as well as from his critically acclaimed play The Body of an American, based on the poems.

War Reporter is focused on photojournalist Paul Watson, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his 1993 photograph of a dead American being dragged through the streets of Mogadishu. Deriving from correspondence between poet and photojournalist and their eventual meeting, the collection of poems bears unsparing witness to the incalculable damage inflicted by contemporary warfare.
