Free Film Screening “Seeds of Hope” Thursday 4:00 PM

unacto11.jpgThe United Nations Association of Canada recently partnered with the British High Commission in Ottawa to provide an opportunity for young Canadians to engage in the policy questions and issues at the forefront of the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict (this week in London, England).  More information on the policy recommendations that came out of this discussion is available on the UNAC website here: http://unac.org/2014/06/psvimodelroundtable/.

To further promote this important issue, the British High Commission is hosting a free screening of the film “Seeds of Hope“, this Thursday June 12 at 4:00 at the UBC Robson Square Theatre here in Vancouver.     “In this feature-length documentary, award-winning BBC/Al Jazeera filmmaker Fiona Lloyd-Davies explores how in the war-torn eastern Democratic Republic of Congo—one woman shines a beacon of hope for survivors of rape.  Masika Katsuva, herself a survivor, has built a centre providing medical, practical, and psychological support which has helped over 6,000 women and children. Together, they cultivate crops of maize and beans—and share their experiences, to heal and rebuild their lives, and to plant their seeds of hope.”
