Roman Chalbaud, Venezuela 2005 [Advised PG], Spanish with EST, 110 mins
The film begins at a meeting in August 2002 where a social activist, Simon Petrov, reads the sentence dictated by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights ordering the Venezuelan state to compensate the relatives of the victims of the 27 February 1989 riots. People at the meeting begin recalling the sequence of events and remembering some tragic events.
Join us on May 21 for a special screening of the film followed by a Q&A and panel discussion, looking at the global movement’s impact and legacy 12 years on.
Journalist and broadcaster Jon Snow will host the discussion with guests including the film’s director Amir Amirani, executive producer and comedian Omid Djalili, convenor of the Stop The War Coalition Lindsey German and professor of international law at UCL Philippe Sands (more guests to be confirmed soon).
