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.
