There’s still a few seats left at the Amnesty International early screening of The Two Towers at 7pm Tuesday 17 in San Francisco. I’ve just been talking to the organisers and it sounds like a fantastic event, if you can get to it! Peter Jackson’s been an incredible supporter of Amnesty International, and for this screening he filmed a special introduction in which he talks about the relationship between Tolkien’s story and the world we live in, and the way the films can make us think about issues of power, freedom and the abuses of force that affect us all.
Everyone who attends this special showing will receive a compilation book about all three movies, and a movie poster. Those alone are worth $35, so the $50 ticket seems like a pretty good deal. To book a ticket to the screening, click here for an invitation.
All proceeds from this charity screening go to Amnesty International
