Through the Lens: Sights and Sites of War – a screening and discussion of Dirty Wars, London, 27 May 2014

A rearranged date for this screening and discussion of Jeremy Scahill’s Dirty Wars, organised by Royal Holloway Geopolitics & Security- 27 May 2014, London. Full details including booking (free, but required) here.

Join us for an evening of film and discussion featuring a screening of the award-winning documentary Dirty Wars (2013) – winner of the Sundance award for cinematography in 2013. This screening is being held in partnership between Passengerfilms and the Royal Holloway MSc Geopolitics and Security Programme.

In and through film, war is observed, interpreted and constructed to invoke a visceral audience response. Dirty Wars and several contrasting short films will provide an avenue to deconstructing how the lenses of the journalist’s eye, the film editor’s art, and the film’s representation of place combine to provoke that response.

A post-screening discussion will be chaired by Dr. Alasdair Pinkerton from the Geography department at Royal Holloway, University of London. Dr. Pinkerton will be joined by director and editor Ben Campbell and journalist and documentary filmmaker Sean Langan, as we attempt to situate war from both sides of the lens.
