For its New York Premiere, the final cut of THE UNCONDEMNED will be screened as a part of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival on June 11th and 12th. With the help of our partners, we have planned a fun schedule of events throughout the city the week of the screenings.
We hope to see you there!
Tuesday, June 7: Olympia Wine Bar
We will kick it off on Tuesday at the Olympia Wine Bar from 6:00 to 8:00pm. What better way to celebrate THE UNCONDEMNED's New York Premiere than at our go-to bar here in Brookyln? The featured drinks of the night will be inspired by a few of the film's stars.

Sunday, June 12: "Next Steps" Salon Series
When an issue seems as large and insurmountable as sexual violence in conflict, how do we get beyond theoretical discussions and come up with solutions? The morning after Saturday night's Human Rights Film Festival screening, join us for a stimulating discussion on the topic of potential solutions. Michele Mitchell, co-director of THE UNCONDEMNED, will moderate the discussion which will feature a number of special guests.
