Returning to Toronto for the first time since its global premiere at TIFF in 2014, TIGERS by Oscar-winning director Danis Tanovic will be screened for one night only at the Humber Cinema on Monday May 1 at 7pm. (Tickets)
TIGERS tells the gripping story of real-life hero Syed Aamir Raza Hussain, a former Nestle salesman in Pakistan turned global whistleblower. Now living with his family in Mississauga, Mr. Hussain will take part in a Q&A about his experiences and the global advocacy work to end predatory marketing that he continues today. Dr. Jack Newman, breastfeeding expert and advocate for the International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes, will introduce the film.
