The Truth: Lost at Sea
Tuesday, 23rd October 2018 | 19:00 - 21:00
The event is about screening the film titled The Truth: Lost at Sea. The film reveals the Israeli attack on the 2010 Freedom Flotilla, a convoy of humanitarian ships which tried to highlight the suffering of Palestinians in Gaza, and break its blockade. Shot from aboard the Freedom Flotilla, directed and narrated by one of its survivors and following up on subsequent media coverage, the film shows how the dead activists & their comrades who defended their vessels were portrayed. The film reveals what really happened and how it was spun in traditional and online media outlets. The screening can be followed by a Question-and-Answer session between the director and the audience.
