In the Land of Blood and Honey is a film that gives a compelling insight into the devastating way in which sexual violence is used as a weapon of war.

Prior to the screening UN Special Envoy Angelina Jolie and Foreign Secretary William Hague will discuss the film and how it inspired the initiative that led to the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict.

Doors open 17:30 on Wednesday June 11.
