16 - 25 March 2005.
The NGO Human Rights Watch organises an eight-day festival at various cinemas throughout London every year. The objective is to highlight injustices and the fight for the defence of human rights worldwide. The first showing will be at the Ritzy Cinema in Brixton with Sometimes in April, a film about Rwanda and the terrifying genocide that took place there in 1994. There will be a showing of The Refugee All Stars, the story of a group of musicians from Sierra Leone who form a band while living as refugees in the Republic of Guinea. There is an amusing film called Baadasssss!, and a series of 20 short documentary films. There are frequently talks by the film directors before and after the screenings. Advance booking is strongly recommended. Tickets can be booked online, or by contacting the cinema.
