WE RISE ABOVE: NEW FILMS ON HUMAN RIGHTS
Political freedom and human rights issues are at the crossroads with the explosion of protest and demonstrations around the world. We Rise Above is a film series which explores issues and leading figures in the field of human rights.
The series, which runs from October to February includes several films - from Alison Klayman's portrait of contemporary artist and activist Ai Weiwei Never Sorry to Michelle Mitchell's investigative look at the improper use of funds for Haiti relief in Haiti: Where Did the Money Go?. Stefano Savana's Tahrir Liberation Square illuminates the two most exciting weeks in the history of modern Egypt and human rights champion Harry Belafonte gives a stirring portrait in Sing Your Song.
