INVIOLABLE – THE FIGHT FOR HUMAN RIGHTS
(89 min) Canada/China/ /Germany/Guatemala/Greece/ Indonesia/Kenya/Turkey  


Director:
Angela Andersen
Producer: Kay Siering

Description:

InviolableThe Fight for Human Rights takes stock seventy years after the Declaration for Human Rights was written. Do countries value what has been a great vision after World War II? From China to Guatemala, from Canada to Kenya, from Greece to Germany, from Turkey to the United States the documentary shows people who are affected by the actions of their governments or corporations. But the film highlights that so many people are tirelessly fighting for human rights. Portraying a nurse in Africa, a student leader in Hong Kong, an environmental activist in Central America, a blind barefoot lawyer from China, a journalist in Istanbul - these people give hope that the fight, if not yet won, is worth the struggle. Brilliant footage and interviews with Kenneth Roth from “Human Rights Watch,” former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and German President Joachim Gauck.
