With post-film discussion with Marie’s sister, Cat Colvin

In February of 2012, war correspondent Marie Colvin illegally crossed the border into Syria with her photographer, Paul Conroy. Ignoring the government's refusal to allow foreign journalists into the country, the two were among the first to attempt to cover the story of civilians trapped in the besieged city of Homs, where they found a ravaged war zone that only one of them would ultimately survive. Grippingly recounting their moment-by-moment journey into Homs, UNDER THE WIRE is a chilling tribute to the courageous bravery that led Colvin and Conroy to their final mission together. (USA, 2018, 95 min., R, English| Dir. Chris Martin)

Legendary Long Island-born Marie Colvin was one of the world’s greatest war correspondents, fearlessly travelling to the front lines of almost every major conflict to report up-close on the realities of life in a war zone. Join us for a tribute to this famed journalist, highlighted by a screening of the gripping new documentary about her final journey to cover the Syrian Civil War.
