Watch and discuss
Once a month we screen a movie pertaining to an aspect of mass violence. At the MVAI Movie Night you will get insight into topics relating to mass violence, with the possibility to engage in a discussion afterwards.
We don’t just screen fictional movies made in Hollywood, but rather give you a broad selection of documentaries and films from around the world. Our movies are chosen based on their validity, as well as their level of interest.
After the movie, we open the floor to a short discussion about what you as a viewer felt about the film and its contents. Do not worry; no specific knowledge about the topic is required.
