Director David Schisgall and subject Theo Padnos will participate in a Q&A moderated by Boston Globe film critic Peter Keough.

(2016) dir David Schisgall [86 min]
In 2012, Theo Padnos, an American journalist, slipped into Syria to report on the country’s civil war and was promptly kidnapped by Al Qaeda. In THEO WHO LIVED, Padnos returns to the Middle East, and retraces the physical and emotional steps of his harrowing 22-month journey in this intimate portrait of personal resilience, and grace in the face of hate.

THEO WHO LIVED will have its theatrical premiere at the Brattle Theatre from October 14th thru 16th. See schedule for showtimes and information.
