Human Rights Watch Film Festival

MUBI Special

We continue our partnership with Human Rights Watch Film Festival, one of the world’s leading independent organizations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights, to show select films from the festival that highlight the organization’s mission and vision for cinema.

A Cambodian Spring

Christopher Kelly United Kingdom, 2017

Human Rights Watch Film
Festival

It took Irish filmmaker Chris Kelly nine years to complete this unwavering survey of the Cambodian conflict, achieving unexpected universality with his focus on the power of activism in the face of corruption. We proudly present this raw portrait of the uprising of a nation with Human Rights Watch.

The Crossing

George Kurian Norway, 2015

We began our spotlight of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival with a tale of migrants in Cyprus. Now we exclusively bring you a new documentary direct from this year’s festival, which has a focus on migration: a remarkable first-hand account of the journey made by a group of Syrian refugees.

Evaporating Borders

Iva Radivojevic United States, 2014

We’re continuing our partnership with New York’s absolutely essential Human Rights Watch Film Festival (June 10 – 19). With 2016’s program emphasizing the topic of migrant crises, we exclusively present a special documentary and a major HRWFF highlight dedicated to the tensions on Cyprus.
