Barcelona’s Human Rights Film Festival is back! This year, the focus will be on Covid-19, with films being selected that make us reflect on the consequences of the pandemic on human rights. This is not only in regards to the right to health, but also to the repercussions that the pandemic has had on other fundamental rights, such as the right to privacy, freedom of speech, mobility, work, education and housing.
This unique festival’s central aim is to show its audience stories about all kinds of injustices and human rights violations experienced around the world. The festival organizers want to “inspire the social conscience of citizens and stimulate actions that reinforce democratic coexistence, social change and global justice.” This year the films are being mostly shown online from December 2020 to March 2021.
The program and reservations can be found via the festival’s website. The program is accompanied by a number of activities, including specialist talks and exhibitions.
