Documentary screening: The White Helmets
Oscar winning documentary, The White Helmets, follows the Syrian Civil Defence forces rescuing those caught in the crossfire of the country’s civil war.
In the five years since the conflict began, more than 250,000 Syrians have died - but thanks to the White Helmets, over 60,000 lives have been saved.
The screening will be followed by a discussion hosted by Professor Tim Jacoby. His research interests focus on conflict analysis, political violence, nationalism, peace, and historical sociology. Director and University of Manchester alumnus, Orlando von Einsiedel, will also be joining us for questions at the end of the film screening.
This event is brought to you as part of the ESRC’s Festival of Social Science and is a global inequalities research beacon public event for The University of Manchester. www.esrcmanchesterfest.ac.uk
