Join us for a screening of VELVET REVOLUTION, a documentary in which six women directors tell the stories of international female journalists working tirelessly, despite a myriad of threats and challenges. In a world riven with conflict and dictatorial regimes, where journalists are constantly under threat, what drives these journalists to do their job?

This doc brings you the testimonies of journalists from countries such as Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Syria, and organisations such as the BBC, on how they overcame risk and spoke truth to power.


Special guest speaker TBA
