Who this event is for
Main Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus
This film follows the first class of students at a remarkable leadership center in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, a region often referred to as “the worst place in the world to be a woman.” These women have been through unspeakable violence spurred on by a 20 year war driven by colonialism and greed.
The Documentary Club screens documentaries made by independent film makers addressing a wide range of cultural, political and social issues. This is intended to broaden the perspectives of Brookes’s students and to engage with the broader community beyond OBU.
Each Thursday during the 2017-18 academic year at 7pm in the John Henry Brookes Lecture Theatre, Headington Campus, we screen a range of documentaries for FREE.
We welcome students, staff and members of the public to join the team of volunteers throughout the year.
