Saving Mes Aynak
Brent E. Huffman, Associate Professor, Medill School of Journalism, Northwestern University
Saving Mes Aynak chronicles the fight to save a 5,000-year-old buried city in Afghanistan from imminent destruction from a Chinese copper mine. Director and Professor Brent E. Huffman will show the award-winning film and talk about how the film was made and the positive impact the documentary and awareness campaign has achieved toward saving cultural heritage in Afghanistan. Huffman will also talk about current challenges and threats, including the recent bombings on the site that killed one archaeologist.
This lecture will be presented virtually using an online video platform. Patrons will be sent access information as the date of the event approaches.
