Syria’s Disappeared: The Case against Assad

Loading Events
  • This event has passed.

Even as the Syrian conflict rages, a legal case is being built against President Bashar al-Assad, who is accused of committing crimes against humanity and war crimes. Through personal testimonies and unprecedented access to regime documents, this documentary film tells the stories of survivors of torture, families of the dead and missing, and regime defectors risking their lives to expose the truth—the torture and murder of civilians on an industrial scale. The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion and question and answer session.
