Screening: Tortured Truth

This is the story of a Parisian refuge for persecuted journalists from all over the world who have suffered torture, prison sentences and death threats because they dared to express themselves freely.


Mon 21st July, 7.30pm Price: £8.00
Screening followed by a Q&A with director Christine Garabedian

Tortured Truths is the story of La Maison des Journalistes, a Parisian refuge for persecuted journalists from all over the world who have suffered torture, prison sentences and death threats because they dared to express themselves freely.

Director Christine Garabedian carefully extracts personal stories from some of the refuge’s inhabitants including an Iraqi poet punished for writing about love and reconciliation amongst his countrymen, a political cartoonist from Burma and a Cuban investigative reporter. What they have in common is that they all fled their home countries fearing their lives merely for speaking out.

Tortured Truths raises important questions about the safety of local journalists who are so often forgotten by the Western media.
