Angelina will be leading Q&A with Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Denis Mukege and City of Joy Centre Director Christine Schuler Deschryver.

“Artists and human rights defenders often taking significant risks, to tell the truth about crimes committed against defenseless women, children, and men during war,” Angelina said in a statement. “The perpetrators of war crimes often go to extreme lengths to keep the truth from being told. So I am proud to support the filmmakers taking part in the festival.”

Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict – which Angelina co-founded – will be hosting the film festival on November 23 and 24 in London.
