Green Zone film showcased by Amnesty Intl

Green Zone, starring Matt Damon, shows at the Okanagan College theatre on Friday, Sept. 26, 7:30 p.m.

Amnesty International’s Kelowna chapter will show the film “Green Zone,” starring Matt Damon, at the Okanagan College theatre on Friday, Sept. 26, 7:30 p.m.

The movie’s title is taken from the green zone, a heavily fortified area in the centre of Baghdad which served as the headquarters for successive Iraqi regimes and was the only relatively safe place for westerners.

This film is based on the non-fiction book, Imperial Life in the Emerald City by journalist Rajir Chandrasekaran, which documented life in the Green Zone in Baghdad during the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Admission is free. For more information, call 250-769-4740.
