A PRIVATE WAR (15)

Wednesday 16th October 2019 - 7:30 pm

Dir: Matthew Heidemann, 2018, USA, 110 mins.
With Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan, Stanley Tucci, Faye Marsay.

Described by its director, documentary film-maker Matthew Heidemann, not as a biopic but as a "psychological portrait of Marie Colvin".  This extraordinary American journalist risked her life and eventually lost it in her determination to penetrate to the very heart of conflict, her aim to make people care as much as she did.  In Afghanistan, Libya and Syria she surrounded herself with the innocent victims of war and forced the world to witness their suffering.
