Alexandre Trudeau joins CJFE for screening of "Embedded in Baghdad

Wednesday, March 3, 2004
Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (CJFE) presents "Embedded in Baghdad", Alexandre Trudeau's powerful documentary about his experience living with an Iraqi family during the 2003 war on Iraq. Following the screening, CBC journalist Wendy Mesley joins Alexandre Trudeau onstage for a rare discussion about his war-time experiences in Iraq, and about the changes in Iraq he has seen since the making of the film. Mr. Trudeau recently returned to Canada after an extended visit to the Middle East this winter. It was a year ago this month that US forces invaded Iraq. "We wanted to present timely films and discussions about important free-expression issues," said CJFE Board member, Carol Off. "Alexandre Trudeau's film offers a compelling alternate perspective to the reports of journalists 'embedded' in the armed forces." This is CJFE's second movie night, following last year's succesful screening of "War Photographer". The event, co-hosted by the Ryerson School of Journalism, is on Tuesday, March 16, 2004 at 7:30P.M. at the Ryerson University Library Theatre(L-72), 350 Victoria St., 1 block north of Dundas, east of Yonge. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased at Pages Books and Magazines (256 Queen St. West). Proceeds support the programs of CJFE. CJFE is an association of journalists and others committed to preserving and promoting free expression and press freedom in Canada and around the world.
