To mark the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists (2 November), UNESCO Brussels Office together with UNRIC and the UK representation to the EU is screening the movie "Under the Wire". The screening will be followed by a panel discussion, which includes the director of the film, Chris Martin and a UNESCO representative from HQ.
The movie is about the war-correspondent Marie Colvin and photographer Paul Conroy whom entered in 2012 war-ravaged Syria to cover the plight of civilians trapped in the besieged Homs, under attack by the Syrian army. Only one of them returned. Based on Conroy’s book "Under the Wire", the film is a gripping account of the triumph of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming adversity.
This film is in English.
Runtime: 95 min
