An exclusive screening of We Are The Giant, a powerful documentary that tells the stories of “ordinary individuals who are transformed by the moral and personal challenges they encounter when standing up for what they believe is right. Powerful and tragic, yet inspirational, their struggles for freedom echo across history and offer hope against seemingly impossible odds”.

The screening will be followed by a discussion panel where Razan Ghalayini, co-producer of the documentary, Brian Dooley, director of Human Rights Defenders Program at Human Rights First in DC, and Maryam Al-Khawaja, a Bahraini human rights activist, a former Fulbright Scholar at Brown, and the protagonist of the film will address this issue from different perspectives.
