Controversial British politician George Galloway will be in Galway later this month for a special screening of the documentary, The Killing$ of Tony Blair, after which he will take part in a question and answer session with the public.
The screening, which takes place in the Town Hall Theatre on Tuesday September 27 at 8pm, will be the only opportunity cinema-goers in the west of Ireland will get to see it on the big screen.
The Killing$ of Tony Blair is presented and narrated by George Galloway, who also produced. It is co-directed by Sanne van den Bergh and Greg Ward. The film was also crowdfunded through Kickstarter. There is a huge cast in this film, including prominent observers, ambassadors, and statesmen, and the always perceptive Stephen Fry.
London’s Time Out called it, "essential...If you need a nauseating reminder of why so many Brits feel alienated from the political centre, here it is.” The Spectator declared: “George Galloway is terrific in this meticulous demolition of Tony Blair”.
Galloway, recognised as an eloquent, caustic, often very funny debator, will attend the screening and take part in a Q&A with the audience afterwards. The MC will be Denis Halliday, former United Nations Assistant Secretary General, who resigned his position over the imposition of punitive sanctions in Iraq in the 1990s.
