United Nations Cinema: To End A War

| Print |

Tuesday 26 June 19:00  LSE 


On 26th June, United Nations Cinema will screen ‘To End A War’ in partnership with LSE IDEAS and the Colombian Embassy. The film explores what it takes for a nation of 50 million to move from from war and hatred to peace and forgiveness. The 52-year fight between the Colombian Government and the Marxist guerilla FARC-EP is the longest running civil war in Latin America. Since September 2012, the Government and FARC have held Peace Talks behind closed doors on neutral ground in Havana, Cuba. This is an intimate observational documentary that offers unprecedented access to both political leaders, President Juan Manuel Santos and FARC Chief Commander Timochenko, during this profound moment in Colombia’s history. 

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Marc Silver (film director); Lord John Thomas Alderdice (former leader of the Alliance Party of Northern Ireland); Annick Hiensch (Political Affairs Officer, UNLOPS); moderated by Dr. Mary Martin (Director of the UN Business and Human Security Initiative at LSE IDEAS).
