The 8th Human Rights Documentary Film Festival
Why We Recommend it
Amnesty International Hong Kong will screen documentary films covering a wide range of human rights issues, from democracy to free speech and infringement of human rights in both the virtual and real world.
Founded in 2011, the Human Rights Documentary Film Festival is the only festival of its kind in Hong Kong. This year’s edition will open with Freedom For The Wolf (2017), a film about how people all over the globe–from Umbrella Movement student protestors and America’s #BlackLivesMatter activists, to Tunisian rappers and Indian comedians–are joining the struggle for freedom.
The closing film is The Cleaners (2018), a documentary about content moderators, the people whose job is to review thousands of images that are uploaded online every day, and have to decide within seconds which ones to keep and which ones to delete.
In addition to the paid screenings, the Human Rights documentary Film Festival will play host to free Community Screenings.
