"Adama," Must-See Film 3/19/13

I am very excited about this upcoming event! I suggested it to Brian Murphy of Communication Studies after meeting one of the people who worked on the film.
  • When: Tuesday, March 19, 2013 from 5-8 p.m.
  • What: Screening of a 60-minute documentary film, "Adama"
  • Who: Presented by Communication Studies, part of their annual Media Awareness Week
  • Why it's Exciting: The filmmaking knocked my socks off; the questions raised by the film are serious, timely, heart-wrenching 

"Adama," directed by David Felix Sutcliffe, chronicles the arrest and detention of a 16 year-old East Harlem NYC girl on charges of training to be a suicide bomber in the wake of 9/11. Although she was exonerated, her family was disrupted; she continues to be detained when she travels.

Sutcliff and Adama herself will be present at this event. Everyone from the NU community and the western NY area is very welcome to attend.
