The Human Rights Watch Film Festival bears witness to human rights violations and creates a forum for courageous individuals on both sides of the lens to empower audiences with the knowledge that personal commitment can make a difference. The film festival brings to life human rights abuses through storytelling in a way that challenges each individual to empathize and demand justice for all people.
Each year highlights from the London and New York Human Rights Watch Film Festivals are presented in their Traveling Film Festivals. The Loft is proud to bring all 10 of their chosen films to audiences in Southern Arizona.
The films in this years program are:
BROTHER NUMBER ONE
CALL ME KUCHU
THE INVISIBLE WAR
WORDS OF WITNESS
Plus: An “Intro to Docs” discussion hosted by Loft Program Director Jeff Yanc.
