A screening of the film RETHINK AFGHANISTAN, which Oliver Stone calls an “in-your-face, makes-you-think documentary” and “an indispensable guide to what’s really going on in Afghanistan. Not what you read in the mainstream newspapers or see on television.”
“Rethink Afghanistan” director Robert Greenwald of Brave New Films will participate in a LIVE STREAMING discussion following the screening.
The screening will begin shortly after 6:30 pm. The live streaming event with Greenwald will take place around 8:15 pm.

To all members of Viva Doc and Columbia documentary students who were unable to attend, you missed out. This was a great event. Not because I organized it but because the conversation with Robert Greenwald was very comprehensive.
