Siddell, Sync Music.
Amir Amirani's feature-length documentary about the global protest
against the Iraq War on 15th February 2003 - a protest that created
the single largest mobilization of people in the history of humanity.
Approximately 30 million people took to the streets, in almost 800
cities around the world, against the imminent invasion of Iraq.
"The global protest against the Iraq War on 15 February 2003
was a pivotal moment in recent history, the consequences of
which have gone unreported. Amir Amirani?s We Are Many
chronicles the struggle to shift power from the old establishment
to the new superpower that is global public opinion, through the
prism of one historic day. I urge you to support this film in
whatever way you can." Oliver Stone.
We Are Many premieres in the UK tonight. A special screening of
the film in 90 cinemas across 45 cities will be followed by a live
broadcast Q&A and panel discussion, which will examine the global
movement's impact and legacy 12 years on.
Journalist and broadcaster Jon Snow will host the discussion with
guests including the film's director Amir Amirani, Blur front-man and
film contributor Damon Albarn, executive producer and comedian
Omid Djalili, convenor of the Stop The War Coalition, Lindsey
German, professor of international law at UCL Philippe Sands and
actor Greg Wise.
