Human Rights Watch Film Festival
London, 13-22 March 2013
REDRESS will be co-presenting two films with Human Rights Watch at their upcoming London Film Festival:
This documentary recounts the decade-long peaceful struggle for independence in East Timor, which ultimately led to the UN-organised referendum in 1999 and the country’s independence, and highlights the grave human rights abuses that plagued the country during this time. The documentary follows two key people during this struggle: human rights activist Kirsty Sword (otherwise known as Ruby Blade) and political prisoner Xanana Gusmão, who became, respectively, the first lady and the first president of East Timor in 2002. The film will be shown on March 19 at 9.00pm at the Ritzy Cinema, and on March 20 at 6.40pm at Curzon Soho.
This documentary explores a terrible chapter of Indonesia’s history by enlisting a group of former killers, including Indonesian paramilitary leader Anwar Congo, to re-enact their lives and the atrocities they committed. When President Sukarno was overthrown in 1965, Anwar and his cohorts joined in the mass murder of suspected communists, ethnic Chinese and intellectuals. Estimates of the number of people killed range from a quarter of a million to more than a million. In 2012, the Indonesian human rights commission declared the 1965 killings a state-sponsored gross human rights violation. It found widespread mass torture, rape, and killing. It recommended the government set up a truth commission, but the government rejected the findings, calling the massacre justified. The film will be shown on March 18 at 6.15pm at Ritzy Cinema and March 19 at 6.15pm at Curzon Soho.
This will be the 17th edition of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival. The film festival brings to life human rights abuses through storytelling in a way that challenges each individual to empathize and demand justice for all people.
