Event Type

Cinema Screening

The War You Don’t See investigates the role and responsibilities that the media, journalism and honest reporting has in war. As weapons and propaganda become even more sophisticated, the nature of war is developing into an ‘electronic battlefield’ in which journalists play a key role and civilians are the victims. In a time of war, who is the real enemy?

This session will include a special introduction from Robert Love AM, Director of Riverside Theatres.
