Yesterday, we successfully hosted the screening of Under The Wire (2018), which flings us on to the frontline of the final joint assignment of the legendry war correspondent Marie Colvin and her colleague, the distinguished photographer Paul Conroy, covering the plight of Syrian civilians besieged in Homs, Syria.
Colvin and Conroy found a war-torn zone in Homs but only one of them could eventually survive. The screening was a moving tribute to the outstanding bravery that led Conroy and Colvin to carry out their final mission together.
We were honoured to have Paul Conroy at our centre were he gave his account on the making of the screening and singed his own book.
Thanks to all those who attended the screening yesterday,
It was an inspiring night!
