Are you looking for narratives as well as documentary films?

Subject: [Videolib] Human Rights Titles

Dear Videolibbers:

National Video Resources is working on a new project with the MacArthur
Foundation to identify exemplary films in the area of human rights. So we’
re soliciting suggestions from you, the experts – what are the best titles
you know under the subjects listed below (no more than 10 titles
total—distributors: this goes for you, too).

a.. Human Rights (history, philosophy and movements)
b.. Asylum
c.. Capital punishment
d.. Children’s rights
e.. Civil rights
f.. Civilians as targets of war
g.. Freedom of religion and belief
h.. Genocide
i.. Migrants
j.. Racial discrimination
k.. Right to labor, health care and/or housing
l.. Terrorism and its response
m.. Women’s rights

We’re looking for variety—different parts of the world, stories of
individuals as well as groups, success stories as well as problems and
indictments.

Thank you…and we hope this is a useful exercise for the entire group.
