One hundred years ago this month, German forces launched the first major chemical weapons attack on the battlefields near Ypres, Belgium.
The new film, “Winds of Chemical Warfare,” traces the history and the human impact of chemical weapons; with a special focus on the 2013 Sarin gas attacks in Syria and the multinational operation to remove the Assad regime’s deadly chemical arsenal.
The screening will be followed by an informal discussion with the filmmaker and three of the world’s foremost experts on the subject:
- Dr. Paul Walker, Director of Green Cross International’s Environmental Security and Sustainability Program;
- Fabienne Lips-Dumas, Filmmaker for "Winds of Chemical Warfare";
- Michael Luhan, former Head of Media and Public Affairs, Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons; and
