SEEDS OF HOPE: Film Screening + Live stream with the UN in New York 20/11/14

Cambridge University Amnesty International CUAI is thrilled to bring you an absolutely unique event with the collaboration of CCARHT (Cambridge Centre for Applied Research in Human Trafficking). We will be participating in the special screening of the film ‘Seeds of Hope’ at the United Nations, hosted by the UN Representative office for Prevention of Sexual Violence.

The film will be screened first and then a Q&A will follow with the director of the film Fiona Lloyd-Davies and some specially invited people attending the UN in New York (including Suzanna Sirkin from Physicians for Human Rights). The UN have facilities to live stream the event so the student audience in Cambridge will be able to ask questions directly to the panel of guests in New York via webcam. We really hope you can join us for this exceptional opportunity!

SEEDS OF HOPE- a 72 minute documentary by Fiona Lloyd-Davies. Seeds of Hope follows the story of Masika Katsuva, a Congolese woman who sacrifices her safety everyday to help others deal with the unimaginable horrors they have experienced in their lives. Since the outbreak of the civil war, which has torn the Congo apart, rape has become commonplace and is used as a weapon of war. At Masika’s centre, a community of rape victims try to rebuild their lives and console each other.
