Description

SYRIA'S DISAPPEARED – THE CASE AGAINST ASSAD
Film screening, panel discussion with Syrian human rights defender Mazen Darwish, followed by a reception

This documentary tells the hidden story of tens of thousands of men, women and children disappeared by the regime of President Bashar al Assad into a network of clandestine detention centres.

The film weaves together the powerful personal stories of three Syrians with evidence gathered from regime documentation smuggled out of Syria.

With unprecedented access, we follow survivors of detention, families of detainees, regime defectors and international war crimes investigators as they fight to bring the perpetrators to justice and desperately campaign for the release of the disappeared.

Following the film, there will be a panel discussion with:

Mazen Darwish – Syrian Center for Media and Freedom of Expression
Philip Luther – Amnesty International
Sara Afshar – Director & Producer of Syria's Disappeared
Nicola Cutcher – Producer of Syria's Disappeared

Doors open at 6.45pm with the screening starting at 7pm. Stick around after the discussion for the reception, and use the hashtag #SyriasDisappeared on the night to tell us what you think.
