Latijns Amerika centrum,
Nieuwe Herengracht 29
18.30u entree 3 euro

There is going to be a screening of a recently completed documentary 
called Drowned Out this Saturday, 30th Nov, in Amsterdam. The film follows 
the story of an Indian family who choose to stay at home and drown rather 
than make way for the Narmada Dam. It is an incredibly powerful film and 
has been getting exceptional reviews:

"There are some films you want to recommend. But this is a film I'd beg 
people to go and see. It is that important." Scottish Socialist Voice

"At once angry, compassionate, distrubing and yet empowering, it makes for 
urgent and necessary viewing" Time Out

The screening will be introduced by the director, Franny Armstrong, who 
will also be able to answer questions afterwards. You may have heard of 
Franny from her documentary 'McLibel' - the inside story of the McDonald's ]
libel trial - or the 'McSpotlight' website, which she launched in A'dam in 
1996 at the Next 5 Minutes conference.

Full details of the screening below and on the flyer at 
http://www.spannerfilms.net/news/pages/amsterdam.htm
For more information on the film see www.spannerfilms.net. 

Hope to see you and your friends there. Feel free to contact 
me with any questions and please pass this information on to anyone 
you know - including press - who may be interested.

Cheers

Lizzie Gillett
