First UK screening of two documentary films:

DEADLY DUST (TODESSTAUB), Frieder Wagner, Germany 2006, 93 mins
This science-based documentary explores the effects of depleted uranium ammunition used in Iraq, Kosovo and Bosnia, though banned by the Hague and Geneva Conventions. The surge in post-war birth defects indicates that an epidemic of reproductive abnormalities is likely to have been caused by the residue of these munitions.

WITH THE LINCOLN BRIGADE IN SPAIN, Henri Cartier-Bresson/Herbert Kline, US 1938, 18mins
The internationally acclaimed photographer Cartier-Bresson filmed the Brigade. Its members were drawn from all walks of life and it is thought to be the first military unit commanded by a black officer. The volunteers trained alongside Spanish troops and became know for their bravery. In 2010 the Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archive discovered, restored and re-released this cinema treasure.

DISCUSSION LED BY Rae Street, CND Council member and active in the International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons, John Green, former documentary filmmaker, and Helen Graham, Professor of Modern European History at Royal Holloway, University of London.
