Open Friday at the RAI

 

The RAI’s Open Friday events bring audiences into conversation with authors and creators. They address unusual and sometimes controversial topics that push at disciplinary boundaries.

 

Film screening and discussion:

In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America

with film director, Maurice Fitzpatrick

Chair: Michael Parker

 

Through the relationships he cultivated with the White House and US Congress, John Hume created the framework for peace in Northern Ireland. Narrated by Liam Neeson, this documentary includes wide-ranging interviews with US Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, UK Prime Ministers John Major and Tony Blair, as well as many US Senators, US Congressmen and Irish leaders.

 

This event is open to the public.

To be followed by a wine reception.
