Osama Abdul Mohsen, a Syrian refugee who came to international attention after being tripped by a Hungarian camerawoman while holding his child, will be a guest at this year’s Jihlava international festival of documentary films, the organisers have announced. Mr. Mohsen, who is now a soccer trainer in Spain, will speak in the festival’s Inspiration Forum section. The opening film at this year’s Jihlava, the 19th edition, will be about the great Czech photographer Josef Koudelka. The event gets underway next Thursday.
