Description: 

While cinema provides entertainment and escape, for many committed filmmakers and viewers it is a vital medium of engagement and a powerful tool for social action. Tackling wide-ranging, thought-provoking issues, activist filmmakers help deepen our awareness of injustice and the values of dignity and equality as they tell universal stories of struggle and triumph. We hope these informative and inspirational films will broaden understanding and stimulate involvement as they reveal hearts and minds focused on challenges that touch us all. Our thanks go to the Human Rights Watch Film Festivals in London and New York for their showcasing and circulating of works of vitally engaged filmmakers, and KBOO Community Radio for their media sponsorship.

NELSON MANDELA: THE MYTH AND ME
DIRECTOR: KHALO MATABANE
SOUTH AFRICA/GERMANY, 2013

Khalo Matabane was an idealistic teenager with fanciful ideas about a post-apartheid era of freedom and justice when the great icon of liberation Nelson Mandela was released from prison in 1990. In a personal odyssey encompassing an imaginary letter to Mandela and conversations with politicians, activists, intellectuals, and artists, Matabane questions the meaning of freedom, reconciliation, and forgive- ness—and challenges Mandela’s legacy in today’s world of conflict and inequality.

REACHING FOR THE STARS
DIRECTOR: BERIT MADSEN
DENMARK/IRAN/GERMANY/NORWAY, 2013

Sepideh is a young Iranian woman who dares to dream—of a future as an astronaut. At night, she stares up at the universe. At home, full of hope and longing, she watches recordings of the first female Iranian in space, Anousheh Ansari. But not everyone appreciates her boundless ambition—becoming an astronaut is not exactly a normal goal for a girl in Iran. Her families worry. She doesn’t want to learn to cook, hardly ever visits her family, and doesn’t seem to be thinking about marriage at all. As we follow Sepideh, it becomes clear just how at odds her dreams are with her current reality and the expectations of those around her. (90 mins.)

WATCHERS OF THE SKY
DIRECTOR: EDET BELZBERG
US, 2014

Interweaving four stories of remarkable courage, compassion, and determination, WATCHERS OF THE SKY uncovers the forgotten life of Raphael Lemkin—the man who created the word “genocide” and believed the law could protect the world from mass atrocities. Inspired by Samantha Power’s Pulitzer Prize–winning book A Problem from Hell, Belzberg’s film embarks on a provocative journey from Nuremberg, Germany, to The Hague, Netherlands, from Bosnia to Darfur, from criminality to justice, and from apathy to action.

RETURN TO HOMS
DIRECTOR: TALAL DERKI
SYRIA/GERMANY, 2013

RETURN TO HOMS provides an intimate portrait of young revolutionaries in western Syria who dream of freeing their country from President Bashar al-Assad by fighting for justice through peaceful demonstrations. But as the army violence escalates and the city is transformed into a ghost town, Basset, the charismatic 19-year-old goalkeeper of the national soccer team whose revolutionary songs make him the voice of the protest movement, and Osama, a 24-year- old media activist and cameraman, decide to take up arms. Soon, grim battles in a deserted city replace those of lively protest parties in the streets. World Cinema Grand Jury Prize, Documentary, Sundance Film Festival. (94 mins.)

When atrocities are committed in countries held hostage by ruthless dictators, Human Rights Watch sends in the E-Team (Emergencies Team), a collection of fiercely intelligent individuals, to document war crimes and report them to the world. Within this volatile climate, Kauffman and Chevigny take us to the front lines in Syria and Libya, where shrapnel, bullet holes, and unmarked graves provide mounting evidence of atrocities by government forces. The crimes are ram- pant, random, and most often unreported—making the E-Team’s effort to get information into the hands of media outlets, policy makers, and international tribunals even more urgent.
