Event Description

New York friends of the Revenue Watch Institute and Natural Resource Charter,

 

On Friday, March 14th, the documentary Big Men will debut here in New York City, and after the opening night screening RWI's Alexandra Gillies will moderate a Q&A with director Rachel Boynton. Big Men is a nuanced film that shows the range of interests at play in oil extraction in Ghana and Nigeria, and Rachel scored truly incredible access to corporate boardrooms, Wall Street meetings, Ghanaian officials, and armed groups in the Niger Delta. For those of us who work on resource governance, the movie will undoubtedly spark conversations about the dynamic and complex implications of Africa's growing oil industry.

 

The exact time of the screening is still to be confirmed, but it will be around 7pm on Friday, March 14th, at the IFC Center in the Village (Sixth Ave. and W. 3rd St.). We will follow up with another message once the cinema releases details, but for now please consider saving the date for an informal evening of lively discussion. And if you can’t make the opening night, the film will be showing for at least one week at the IFC.
