Leon McCarron: The Land Beyond

Leon McCarron: The Land Beyond

Thursday 7 March, 8pm-9pm

Al Ras 1, InterContinental, DFC

Authors: Leon McCarron
There are many reasons why it might seem unwise to walk, mostly alone, through the Middle East. That, in part, is exactly why Leon McCarron, Northern Irish adventurer and filmmaker, did it.

McCarron followed a series of wild hiking trails that trace ancient trading and pilgrimage routes and traverse some of the most contested landscapes in the world. He

found connection rather than division, hope instead of hatred and, ultimately, a shared humanity that borders and politics will never diminish.
