Film screening: City of ghosts
Film about Syria and Panel Debate
From the Academy Award®-nominated director of Cartel Land, now comes the documentary City of Ghosts. The film follows the citizen journalist collective Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently, working in secret and under constant threat, as they attempt to expose the crimes of ISIS in their own home towns.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Amund Bakke Foss, foreign correspondent reporting on war and conflict for VG; Åsne Seierstad, award winning journalist and author of To Søstre; and Ole Solvang, Human Rights Watch Emergencies Division Deputy Director, working to investigate, report and expose human rights violations in worldwide crisis situations on a rapid-response basis.
