Amnesty Cinema Night: Shadow World

Amsterdam Overtoom 301, Cinerma of the Dam'ned FEB 27 20.30H After the film, we'll be joined by Wendela de Vries from Stop Wapenhandel.

SHADOW WORLD reveals the shocking realities of the global arms trade – the only business that counts its profits in billions and its losses in human lives. Directed by Johan Grimonprez (“dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y”) and in part based on Corruption Watch UK founder Andrew Feinstein’s globally acclaimed book "The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade," the film reveals how the international trade in weapons – with the complicity of governments and intelligence agencies, investigative and prosecutorial bodies, weapons manufacturers, dealers and agents – fosters corruption, determines economic and foreign policies, undermines democracy and creates widespread suffering.

This screening is part of our Amnesty Cinema Night series featuring some of the most engaging and dynamic films about human rights, including guest speakers. All of our collections will go to a charity! So come along, watch a movie and learn about human rights issues. We look forward to seeing you there!
