‘How I Did It’: Investigating U.S.-Backed Night Raids in Afghanistan

RSVP Now >>

Join us for a screening of The Night Doctrine and conversation with freelance journalist Lynzy Billing and filmmaker Almudena Toral.

Billing returned to rural Afghanistan to investigate the murders of her mother and sister in a night raid nearly 30 years earlier, but her journey was transformed when she discovered CIA-backed night raids killing hundreds of civilians, with no one being held to account.

Join Billing and Toral for a screening of their film, The Night Doctrine and a conversation about Billing’s ProPublica investigation, The Night Raids, which won the Overseas Press Club’s Ed Cunningham Award.

RSVPs are required.

This event is co-sponsored by the Simon and June Li Center for Global Journalism at Columbia University and the Overseas Press Club of America.
