About the Series
The Human Rights Film Series, first organized in 2000 and presented by the Center for Media & Social Impact and the Center for Human Rights & Humanitarian Law, showcases the power of film to educate and advocate about human rights. Four exceptional documentary films that exhibit excellence in filmmaking and explore a broad spectrum of human rights issues are screened each fall. Following each screening, there is an opportunity for the filmmaker and human rights advocates to discuss the film and its issues with the audience. The Centers also provide resource pages to provide a deeper understanding of the underlying human rights issues discussed in the films. The Human Rights Film Series is free and open to the public.
