A Private War: Fundraising Film Screening

Thank you to all those who joined us at the May Fair Hotel on 23rd January for the  sold out UK screening of A Private War.

This film starring Rosamund Pike follows the incredible life of renowned journalist Marie Colvin, for which Annie Lennox has written and recorded the theme Requiem for A Private War.  Oscar-nominated Heineman has created a devastating portrait of a complex, brilliant woman. In every scene, Pike fiercely inhabits Colvin  who sacrificed her own safety and happiness to bear witness to the very human cost of armed conflict: ‘the people who have no voice’.

Annie Lennox has written and recorded the Golden Globe nominated song ‘Requiem for A Private War’ especially for the film.

The incredibly moving film was followed by a Q&A with Rosamund Pike and Paul Conroy, the opportunity to purchase Lindsey Hilsum’s new book ‘In Extremis’ and a drinks reception.

All proceeds will go towards the Marie Colvin Journalists’ Network.

If you’ve missed out on this event, then you can catch a screening on February 4th in screens around the country. The showing will be followed by a live Q&A screened with Rosamund Pike and Jamie Dornan. Click here to find a showing near you and book your place.

When? 23 January, 7pm.

Where? May Fair Hotel, London.
