UPDATE: Pulitzer Prize-winning author and National Security Council senior director Samantha Power, filmmaker Greg Barker, and Enough Co-Founder John Prendergast had fascinating insights to share last night about Sergio – the film and the man. If you weren’t able to listen in to the conference call we hosted after the HBO screening, the audio is now available.
HBO will rebroadcast "Sergio" a few times in the coming days, so check the schedule to find out when to tune in.
Join activists and viewers across the country this Thursday to watch the HBO premiere of “Sergio,” a powerful film about the life of Sergio Vieira de Mello, the U.N.’s top envoy in Baghdad following the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq and one of the most tireless and effective advocates for peace and stability the world has ever known.
The Enough Project and Campus Progress have teamed up to coordinate and organize house parties across the U.S. to view and discuss the film together. A nationwide conference call will immediately follow the screening to give audience members the chance to discuss the film with special guests Samantha Power, senior director for multilateral affairs at the National Security Council, who wrote a biography of Vieira de Mello in 2008; John Prendergast, Co-founder of the Enough Project; and Greg Barker, director of “Sergio.”
