Join MTV Documentary Films, the World Affairs Council of Charlotte, and World Affairs Councils of America on Tuesday, April 6th at 7:00pm ET for an exclusive documentary screening of Oscar® nominated HUNGER WARD followed by a conversation between Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Nicholas Kristof and Academy Award® nominated filmmaker Skye Fitzgerald.
This unflinching look at the human-caused famine in Yemen follows health care workers Dr. Aida Asladeeq and nurse Mekkia Mahdi as they work to save the lives of hunger-stricken children in two therapeutic feeding centers, against the backdrop of a forgotten war. The program is free and open to the public, and WACA thanks the World Affairs Council of Charlotte for the opportunity to co-host such a critically important piece of art and education for Councils nationwide.
This program is presented in partnership with the World Affairs Councils of America, the World Affairs Council of Charlotte, Vulcan Productions, Spin Film, and Ryot Films.
