We Are Many | Amir Amirani

21 May 2015

Director and Producer Amir Amirani, Music Supervisor Christian 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.
