Global Concerns: Human Rights on Film
For those Pulsewire users located in Portland, the Northwest Film Center will be showing a series of human rights related films throughout the month of October and early November, including Rape in the Congo on October 7 and The Sari Soldiers (which I would like to personally recommend) on October 23.
From the Northwest Film Center Website:
While cinema can provide entertainment and escape, for many committed filmmakers and viewers it is a vital medium of information and a powerful tool for social change. Tackling wide-ranging, thought-provoking issues, activist filmmakers help deepen our awareness of the values of dignity, equality, and justice, as they tell universal stories of human struggle and triumph. We hope that the works presented in Global Concern will broaden understanding and stimulate involvement as they reveal the hardship, courage, and commitment of those whose hearts and minds are focused on the many challenges confronting humanity.
