The Human Rights Film Festival, created this year and organised in collaboration with Amnesty International and Survival, features fiction, animation and documentary movies that all either seek to help defend human rights and/or raise awareness about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Amongst its highlights, the festival will be screening the world premier of the WikiLeaks documentary, which features the video Collateral Murder along with unedited files showing the killing of dozens of civilians in Baghdad by US soldiers in June 2007. Participants include the current spokesperson for WikiLeaks, Kristinn Hrafnsson and the brother of Spanish tv cameraman José Couso killed by fire from US troops in Iraq in 2003, who will both take part in a round table regarding the Couso killing on June 11th at the Colegio de Periodistas de Catalunya.
Other documentaries include The Prison Where I Live, from British film-maker Rex Bloomstein, You don't like the truth—four days inside Guantánamo and Newen Mapuche from Elena Varela.
Please note that the venue for the film screenings has been changed to the Cines Alexandra (Rambla Catalunya 90) following a fire at the Cines Méliès.
