Tuesday, 23rd of February, 8pm of The War You Don't Seem, John Pilger, Alan Lowery, 2010 from Sands Films

In The War You Don't See, John Pilger returns to the subject of war reporting and its critical role in the making of wars. This ‘drum beat’ was the theme of Pilger's 1983 documentary Frontline: The Search for Truth in Wartime, a history of war journalism from the Crimea in the 19th century (‘the last British war without censorship’) to Margaret Thatcher's Falklands War in 1982. The War You Don’t See analyses propaganda as a weapon in Iraq and Afghanistan. The title refers to censorship by omission – ‘the most virulent form of censorship,’ said Pilger – and the collusion of journalists in nominally free societies such as Britain and the United States. London Socialist Film Co-op, in collaboration with the Committee for the Defence of Julian Assange and Sands Films, would like to invite you to a film screening of this outstanding film on 23rd of February, 8pm from the Sands Films Studios, whose regular, wonderful screenings takes place on Tuesdays of every week.Films can be viewed after the event, should you miss this date's show.
