Jim: The James Foley Story

James Foley's Mother, Diane, will lead a discussion following the screening.

On Thanksgiving Day 2012, American photojournalist James “Jim” Foley was kidnapped in Syria. He was missing for two years before the infamous video of his public execution by ISIS was posted online, and sent shock waves across the world.

'Jim: The James Foley Story', a documentary by close childhood friend Brian Oakes, tells the story of Foley’s life through intimate interviews with his family, friends and fellow journalists – while fellow hostages reveal never-before-heard details of his captivity.
