Every March, we present a selection of powerful films with distinctive human rights themes. Just a few of the remarkable works we’ve presented over the years include the Academy Award-winning Born into Brothels, War/Dance, Shakespeare Behind Bars, Mardi Gras: Made in China, and dozens more.
The power of film cannot be underestimated to challenge the viewer and promote calls to action. Rather than wallow in despair, the films in this series will put a human face on threats to individual freedom and dignity, and celebrate the ability of the human spirit and intellect to prevail.
This year's thrilling series includes films by such renowned directors as Gus Van Sant and Susan Sontag, and address trans-national topics ranging from a rehabilitation center in Tehran to injustices in Beijing.
