Lincoln: The Legacy – special screening and discussion

Euro Media Forum in collaboration with Eden Cinemas and the US Embassy are organising a special screening and discussion that gives an insight into the highlights of Abraham's Lincoln political career. The film Lincoln directed and produced by Steven Spielberg is an American historical drama film that is based in part on Doris Kearns Goodwin's biography of Lincoln and covers the final four months of Lincoln's life. Lincoln was nominated for Seven Golden Globe Awards and twelve Academy Awards.

Speakers from the US Embassy in Malta Thomas M Schmidt and Nathan Austin will delve into the American and European socio-economic and political scenario during which Lincoln became President. The social, economic and political motivations to abolish slavery as well as the necessity of leading a country to war will also be discussed. The discussion will also reflect on Lincoln's influence on today's human rights legislation and leading politicians. Questions from members of the audience are welcome.

Lincoln's special screening will take place at Cinema 11 at Eden Cinemas on the 1st February 2013. The discussion follows the 5.30 p.m. screening. Tickets for the Lincoln special screening and discussion can be bought from www.edencinemas.com.mt.
