This Friday: The 16th Human Rights Watch Film Festival

The 16th Human Rights Watch Film Festival opens at the Ritzy in Brixton,
London, this Friday 23 March. A week-long programme of thought-provoking
films and Q&A sessions focusing on racism, women?s rights, environment and
the global economy.

Human Rights Watch is one of the world's leading independent organisations
dedicated to defending and protecting human rights. Its Film Festival
brings to life human rights abuses through storytelling in a way that
challenges each individual to empathise and demand justice for all.

The closing night film and reception will be on Friday 30 March with Nadine
Labaki's drama WHERE DO WE GO NOW?. This is the heartwarming tale of a
group of women determined to protect their isolated community from divisive
forces that threaten to destroy it from within. The screening will be
followed by a discussion with director.
