Top director promotes campaign against cluster bombs

Film director Neil Jordan will tonight introduce a Dublin film screening timed to coincide with a major international conference on cluster bombs.

'Unacceptable Harm', directed by Chris Anderson, depicts the horrific human impact of the munitions used in war zones across the world.

A 12-day diplomatic conference at Croke Park is seeking to agree a global treaty banning cluster bombs.

The 'Unacceptable Harm' film will be aired on a giant screen in Dublin’s Meeting House Square.

The event will be attended by cluster bomb victims and campaigners.

Earlier that evening, some of Anderson’s work will be shown in an exhibition entitled ’What Remains’ at the Gallery of Photography in Temple Bar.

Photography by Alison Locke will also be showcased at the venue.
