INVITATION FROM NGO CSW: Join us for an in-person screening of the documentary, Velvet Revolution!
Date: Tuesday, 16 May 2023
Time: 1 – 3 pm EDT
In this exciting collaborative film six women directors take their lens up close to women making news in a world riven with conflict and dictatorial regimes. When journalists are constantly under threat, what drives these women to do their jobs?
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with speakers including the director of the film and women journalists. Panel includes:
Nupur Basu, Velvet Revolution filmmaker
Olivia Tumanjong, journalist, Cameroon
Lady Ann Salem, journalist, Philippines
Najeeba Ayuubi, journalist, Afghanistan
Moderator: Sheila Katzman, IAWRT
This is our first in-person event in many years and we are so excited to see our local friends! This screening will take place in-person at Church Center for the United Nations, New York on the 2nd floor. There will be no virtual component or livestream.
