Film screening & discussion at the Curzon cinema, London: Deliver Us From Evil

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

This Sunday (9 September) the Frontline Club and the Curzon cinema are co-hosting a screening of Deliver Us From Evil, producer/director Amy Berg's film about the American priest Father Oliver O'Grady, the most notorious paedophile in the history of the Catholic Church.

The screening at the Curzon will be followed by a panel discussion on whether the media's coverage of child abuse in the Catholic Church has been fair. This will feature Guardian religion correspondent Stephen Bates, Mike Jempson of the Mediawise Trust, commentator for The Tablet Clifford Longley, and David Niven, founder of Action Against Child Exploitation. The discussion will be chaired by New Humanist editor Caspar Melville.

Date: Sunday 9th September, 2pm
Price: £6.50
Location: Curzon Soho, 99 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, W1D 5DY

Tickets can be booked by visiting the Curzon website, or by calling 0870 756 4620.

In the new September/October issue of New Humanist, Francis Beckett reports on the efforts of survivors of abuse in British religious schools to make their cases, suggesting Catholics in the UK have been more successful than in the US in putting obstacles in the way of victims.

What It’s Like to Chill with the Most Ruthless Men in the World
Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic:
Confessions of a Female War Crimes Investigator

Retrospectively, it was all so simple, natural and matter of fact being on a boat restaurant in Belgrade, sitting with, laughing, drinking a two hundred bottle of wine and chatting about war and peace while Ratko Mladic held my hand. Mladic, a man considered the world’s most ruthless war criminal since Adolf Hitler, still at large and currently having a five million dollar bounty on his head for genocide by the international community. Yet there I was with my two best friends at the time, a former Serbian diplomat, his wife, and Ratko Mladic just chilling. There was no security, nothing you’d ordinarily expect in such circumstances. Referring to himself merely as, Sharko; this is the story of it all came about.
