Human Rights in Film

At the University of Westminster the excellent Dr Emma McClean organises an ongoing series of films under the banner of a Human Rights Film Series. Recent films shown include No Man's Land and Persepolis and these are always a welcome addition to the life of the Law School, and much appreciated by the students. I have just noticed that Human Rights Watch are organising a film festival that looks well worth looking into. It begins in London on 17th March and carries on until the 26th March - there are lots of interesting films being shown within three themes; 'Accountability and Justice', 'Development and Migration' and 'Closed Societies: Iran and North Korea'.  In the 'Accountability and Justice' theme In the Land of the Free... and War Don Don look especially of interest look well worth checking out, but the festival as a whole looks very worthwhile.
