Human Rights Films
Human Rights Films Exhibition
On the evening of 30 March, human rights activists across the sub-Saharan Africa region took part in the hosting of a virtual human rights videos watch party by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation.
The exhibition was on five human rights short-films that were produced by FNF Africa between 2018 and 2020. The films profile various human rights issues in the region such as human trafficking, corruption, persecution of journalists, LGBT+ rights violations and violence towards women by men.
The plan was to have a physical exhibition of the films, however this had to change because of COVID-19. This online viewing was not just be a sit-in, eat pop-corn and get shocked experience. The viewers had the opportunity to give short digital reviews of the films as the viewing progressed.
The activists were able to engage and share their own country experiences on the issue of human rights. FNF Africa has put together a report from the event based on the insights shared by the activists on the films and on their own personal experiences as human rights activists.
