You are invited to be among the first in the world to see Skye Fitzgerald’s (Spin Film) new documentary, Hunger Ward, which offers a devastating, firsthand look at the war and famine in Yemen — what many call the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. This 40-minute film offers an unforgettable look at this human-caused tragedy. Fitzgerald and team embed with healthcare workers in therapeutic feeding centers, providing critical services to some of Yemen’s nearly two million malnourished children under the age of five. Countless children are dying of starvation, disease and airstrikes, a situation made worse by drastic 75% budget cuts by the United Nations due to a shortage in funding from member nations.
A panel discussion with Q&A will immediately follow the screening. Panelists include:
Denis McDononough (moderator), professor of the practice of public policy at the Keough School of Global Affairs at the University of Notre Dame
Skye Fitzgerald, Oscar and Emmy nominated director of Hunger Ward
Nazanin Ash, vice president of Global Policy and Advocacy at the International Rescue Committee
