Human Rights Film Festival at USF, March 23-25, 2017
USF’s Human Rights Film Festival seeks to promote awareness and discussions of global human rights injustices through films from around the world. This year’s films take place in locations as varied as the U.S., Honduras, China, The Philippines, Peru, Afghanistan, Morocco, Spain, and Argentina. The issues highlighted include: political repression, racism, environmental destruction, LGBTQ rights, sexual abuse of children, immigration, refugees, killings and disappearances, state and domestic terrorism, child sex trafficking, the rights of migrant farm workers, the devastating effects of the prison system in society, police brutality, the pillage of resources by multinational corporations and its consequences for indigenous peoples, the devastation and casualties of war, and the industry of policing in the U.S. Several of these films are winners of prestigious awards, including Do Not Resist, a 2016 Tribeca Film Festival winner for best documentary feature. This event is FREE and open to the public. For a full schedule and descriptions of the selected films, please visit https://www.usfca.edu/arts-sciences/about/human-rights-film-festival.
