On 13 February 2012, two journalists entered war-ravaged Syria. One of them was celebrated Sunday Times war correspondent, Marie Colvin. The other was photographer, Paul Conroy. Their aim was to cover the plight of Syrian civilians trapped in Homs, a city under siege and relentless military attack from the Syrian army. Only one of them returned.
Based on the book of the same name by Paul Conroy, Under The Wire tells the incredible story of his and Marie’s fateful mission – and Paul’s epic battle to escape the city, to tell the world of his fallen colleague and the plight of the people of Homs.
The London premiere screening on 3rd September will be followed by a Q&A with Paul Conroy and director Chris Martin.
