Initiated in May 2011, with the presentation documentary Restrepo in remembrance of war journalist & photographer Tim Hetherington - who was killed in April 2011 while reporting from the fights in Misrata and Libya – the Monthly Screenings Project fulfils the Foundation's mission of furthering worldwide peace through the support of cinematographic works.
Since 2011, the Cinema for Peace Foundation has held screenings in Berlin, Hamburg and Frankfurt, Vienna, London, Barcelona and as well as in Africa and Russia. We believe that it is not only important to simply screen a film, but follow each screening with a discussion. Experts and organizations related to the respective subject of the films are often invited.
In order to inform and educate communities around the world, such films are supported and made widely accessible through the Foundation in an effort to raise awareness about global issues.
Screening in the Middle East.

"Under the Taliban's strict rule, somewhere in the dusty and bustling town of Kabul in Afghanistan, the 11-year-old girl, Parvana, helps her father sell the family's goods in the market, amidst potential customers and gun-toting fundamentalists. But when her dad is incarcerated on a convenient and unjust pretext, it's up to the spirited Parvana's resourcefulness to feed and care for the rest of her family with the use of a desperate and daring plan. Eventually, as Parvana, the youthful storyteller, takes matters into her own hands wandering all alone on the perilous streets, an unexpected friend will provide hope and a sense of freedom. But is a will of iron enough to survive in a man's world?"
