AFTERMATH documentary screening and panel discussion

Wednesday, February 3, 2016 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST

The School of Environment, Enterprise and Development (SEED) is hosting a screening of the documentary AFTERMATH, which explores the story of the Nicobar Islands after being devastated by the 2004 tsunami. The film, which had its world premiere in Vienna, has generated a fair bit of attention, as it focuses on the controversial impact of international development aid in light of increasing extreme weather events happening globally.

There will be an interactive panel discussion using the themes in the documentary as a starting point. Here is a review of the film for your reference. Dr. Jean Andrey, Dean of the Faculty of Environment, will be moderating the panel and a Q&A with the audience.

Panelists include:

Dr. Alicia  Sliwinski, Wilfrid Laurier University

Dr. Bruce Frayne, University of Waterloo

David Barth, World Accord
