Staller Center for the Arts’ Spring Movie Series will hold a special screening of A Private War on Friday, February 22, at 7 pm. The film tells the story of the journalist and war correspondent, Marie Colvin, who was killed in 2012 while reporting from Syria.

The screening will be held in cooperation with Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism and the Long Island Press Club. It will be followed by a question and answer session with the film’s director Matthew Heineman and moderated by Howard Schneider, Founding Dean of the School of Journalism.

A Private War stars Rosamund Pike as Marie Colvin, with Jamie Dornan and Stanley Tucci in supporting roles. Pike was nominated for a Golden Globe award for her performance.

Marie Colvin was a native Long Islander with a fearless and rebellious spirit who reported from war-town countries, giving a voice to the voiceless. Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism established the Marie Colvin Center for International Reporting in her memory with strong support from the Colvin family and a Board of Advisors, which includes well known journalists from around the world. A Private War is screening at Staller Center on the seventh anniversary of Marie’s death.

General admission tickets to A Private War are $10 for adults, $7 for students and seniors, and $5 for Stony Brook University students. Order online or call the box office at (631) 632-ARTS.

Staller Center also offers a $30 movie pass for 10 films screening through February and March.
