Screening the Issues

A film and discussion series sponsored by the
United Nations Association of New York

 

 

 

Cinema has long been recognized as one of the most effective ways to educate and motivate a community.

Since January 2009, Screening the Issues has been promoting the work of the United Nations with screening events that serve a dual purpose: to commend the intelligence of filmmakers who have the courage and passion to address crucial human concerns while presenting important global issues to a culturally aware New York audience. The mission of UNA-NY is to educate, inspire and mobilize the NYC community and to raise awareness of the vital work of the United Nations.

These screenings are followed by lively discussions with the filmmakers themselves, or experts from the United Nations, about issues illustrated by or dealt with in the films. As seating is limited, and because of this special opportunity for dialogue with our guests, we strongly encourage reservations for these events.

We showcase films that represent a wide range of countries and speak out for pressing issues such as human rights, global health, climate change, natural resources and water scarcity, peacekeeping, poverty, nuclear proliferation and international terrorism. In our interdependent world, the resolution of these issues and challenges are crucial to international peace and security.
