Faculty Spotlight: Deirdre Boyle Moderates at the Irish Arts Center for Film Western Sahara—A Deserted People

Set in the searing heat of the refugee camps in the desert of Algeria and in the occupied Western Sahara, Western Sahara—A Deserted People tells the compelling and moving story of how the Sahrawi people’s lives have been framed by poverty and injustice over their 40-year-long displacement. First presented by RTÉ, this documentary illustrates an indifferent world, exposing the human consequences of global economic inequalities, a hostile political environment, and human rights violations.

Screening for the film takes place at the Irish Arts Center, 553 West 51st Street, New York, NY on Monday November 6th at 7:30 pm. Following the screening, David McKean from Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights will join producer Peadar King in conversation. Faculty member Deirdre Boyle will moderate the Q&A.
