we have a fantastic opportunity to engage with some of the key voices in the Egyptian Revolution. A special event in association with BBC Arabic Service at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, this is an unmissable opportunity to hear Omar Robert Hamilton
, Manal Hassan
, Khalid Abdalla, Salma Said
and others reflect on the momentous events in Egypt. As protests continue against new anti-protest laws, they will also discuss the challenges that lie ahead for their revolution and for those taking place across the region.
Screenings in the week ahead include Victory Day, a portrait of journalism and crime in Russia; a special preview screening of Armadillo following young Danish soldiers stationed in Afghanistan and Granito, documenting the search for justice in Guatemala
Next week’s third party event will be examining the tools of the modern media age. We will be annoucing the subject of April’s First Wednesday discussion tomorrow.
And don’t forget our Club Quiz tonight – enter as an individual or as a team of six for an evening of entertainment hosted by David Dickinson.
