Justice and the Arts Research Group (in conjunction with Ecologies and the Arts): Film Screening 'Bhopali' (2011), directed by Van Maximilian Carlson

20th January 2015, 18:00, PG28 Palace Green, Durham University

The film documents the experience of second generation children affected by the Union Carbide gas disaster of 1984, the worst industrial disaster in history. It follows several children as they and their families cope with the ongoing medical and social disaster, as well as their memories of that traumatizing night that shocked the world and changed Bhopal forever. Set against the backdrop of vehement protests for the 25th anniversary of the disaster, the Bhopalis continue to fight for justice, proving to be anything but victims.

Wine and refreshments provided.
