It is that time of year again when the Human Rights Watch film festival makes it's way to London. Starting on the 21st of March and ending on the 30th London cinemas such as the Curzon and Ritzy show an array of topical films concentrating on the issues of Human Rights. I went last year and saw two amazing features, first a documentary about the homeless in LA's Skid Row, and second a film about Kenyan education, and the fight of an 80 year old villager fighting to get his first grade education. Through clicking on the picture above you can see what films are showing over the 10 days. As I will be flying out half way through the run I have only managed to book two viewings however I am super excited at seeing Even the Rain, a story about the politics of water in South America and The Price of Sex a documentary regarding the issue of Human trafficking for sex services. I really encourage you if you are in the area or in any of the cities that the festival travels too, as they are all informative and engaging. They even have a selection of talks too with some of the people involved with the films. Seriously. Go.
Here is the trailer for Even the Rain for you to check out:
