Update: Paris & Treaty B'Day 02-October-2007


Disarm is screening in Paris as part of the Cinéma Vérité film festival. It will show at midday on Saturday 13 October at Cinéma La Bastille, 5 rue du Faubourg St Antoine. Please let your friends in Paris know!

The 25-minute edit of Disarm that Bob Abeshouse prepared screened in the U.S. on Al Jazeera International in late August. We've since obtained permission to insert the edit as an extra on the DVD that we are producing.

Disarm has screened in several events held to commemorate the ten year anniversary of the Mine Ban Treaty’s negotiation. At the Oslo screening on 17 September, 2007, Cambodian mine survivor and ICBL Youth Ambassador Song Kosal introduced the film.

Mary is gearing up to host a major diplomatic meeting on cluster munitions to be held in New Zealand next February and Brian has been busy recording the soundtrack for a documentary about an Afghan woman presidential candidate called Frontrunner.

That’s it for now – let us know if you have any questions!
