August Meetup - 'The People Smuggler'

  • August 14, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • The Courthouse Hotel

Become engrossed in the true story of Ali Al Jenabi as he flees Saddam Hussein's torture chambers. The People Smuggler tells a story of daily heroism, bringing to life the forces that drive people to put their lives in unscrupulous hands. An utterly gripping portrait of a man cut loose from the protections of civilisation, attempting to retain his dignity and humanity while taking whatever path he can cut out of an impossible position.
