'Mr Jones' - a screening of Agnieszka Holland's new film


Friday, 22 November 2019, 6:30pm

The Old Divinity School, St John's College, Cambridge.


Cambridge Polish Studies and Cambridge Ukrainian Studies, in conjunction with HREC (Canada) and AUGB (UK) are pleased to present a screening and discussion of the 2019 drama film ‘Mr. Jones’ directed by Agnieszka Holland, and starring James Norton, Vanessa Kirby and Peter Sarsgaard.


The film loosely tells the story of Gareth Jones, a University of Cambridge Graduate and Welsh journalist, who in 1933 broke the news in the western media of the Holodomor (death by starvation) - the man-made famine in the Soviet Union under Stalin. Jones unofficially travelled to Ukraine and risked his name and reputation to report on the Ukrainian genocide during which millions of people perished.


Tickets are free, but reservations are required.
