CHILDREN - WHAT HOPE FOR TOMORROW?
UNAFF Traveling Film Festival Chicago
Columbia College Chicago
Children - What Hope for Tomorrow? A one-day festival
of films on children's rights, presented by the United Nations Association
Traveling Film Festival Chicago and the Documentary Department of
Columbia College Chicago.
Children everywhere represent the best hope for the future, but
increasingly they are victims of events and decisions beyond their
control. On every continent the personal potential and rights of
young people are being eroded - through exploitation, abuse and
neglect, and as victims of war, preventable disease and social injustice.
The Documentary Department of Columbia College and the United Nations
Association Greater Chicago Chapter are joining forces to present
a day of exceptional and rarely seen films on the Rights of Children.
The films have been selected as part of the United Nations Association
Film Festival (UNAFF) - an independent
project of the not-for-profit United Nations Association.
