The Human Rights Film Festival 2006

The Human Rights Film Festival 2006

A film festival with a difference – New Zealand 's only human rights film festival – is bringing extraordinary documentaries and dramas to the big screen near you.

With a programme that includes the inspirational Breaking Bows and Arrows: Search for Reconciliation and Forgiveness, the frightening no holds barred documentary about California's reproduction dream world Frozen Angels, and the true account of an Indian family who would rather drown than allow the destruction of their land, home and culture in Drowned Out, this year's Human Rights Film Festival promises to be both educational and inspirational.

May 3rd 2006 World Press Freedom Day is dedicated to the theme "Media and Good Governance", and as a tribute to those journalists who have lost their lives The Human Rights Film Festival is proud to present Miguel , ne terren (Miguel, on the spot) a moving portrait of a brave and principled war reporter.
