Video recap of an Amnesty International campaign which run a few months ago in Belgium. 60 years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed, human rights are still flouted. And Amnesty International has decided to take an interactive approach to raise awareness in the country.
For 20 years, the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival has showcased the stories of activists and survivors across the world and empowered viewers with the knowledge that personal commitment can make a very real difference. This year at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London is offering some extraordinary new films from the festival, including a screening and director Q&A for Afghan Star, winner of two major awards at Sundance recently, which is being released at the ICA for a longer run later this month.
