Grand Rapids infoshop The Bloom Collective (8 Jefferson SE, Grand Rapids) will host a screening of the documentary "The Trials of Henry Kissinger.

The film is based on the book by Christopher Hitchens, and examines some of the allegations of war crimes aimed at Henry Kissinger, National Security Advisor and Secretary of State during the Nixon Administration. The film calls into question the actions of Kissinger in regards to U.S. foreign policy and involvement in Indochina, Bangladesh, Chile, East Timor, and Cyprus.

"The Trials of Henry Kissinger" is portrayed from the perspective that Hitchens approaches the narrative by maintaining a focus on the accusations and evidence that would potentially stand up, based on precedents like Nuremberg, in the international courts. 

The screening of the film is in response to Kissinger's visit to the Economic Club of Grand Rapids on Monday, May 6. Requests for a statement from the office of Henry Kissinger in regards to the film, and whether he would be attending the screening, were unanswered.

I moved from the Metro Detroit area to Grand Rapids in October 2009, and fell in love with the Rapidian right away. I like how the Rapidian is an invaluable tool for contributing to the community, meeting new friends, and discovering new places and events in Grand Rapids. I am always looking for an excuse to point my camera at something interesting and capture a good story. Feel free to contact me with your ideas, events, and opportunities. Or just to say "hi" and make friends. MY EMAIL IS [email protected]

Reports on: music, art, food, and whatever else strikes me fancy...
