Human Rights Film Festival

The Human Rights Watch Film Festival will take place in San Diego on May 22nd, Los Angeles on June 2nd, in New Yok between June 13-20th. 

Among the films is "On the President's Orders" which documents Philipino President Dutertes "War On Drugs" which resulted in the killing of thousands of suspected drug users and dealers.  The filmakers had access to police and to members of the harmed families and were able to document the "trajectory of power to abuse". 

Among other movies is "Accept the Call" which addresses the targeting of Muslim youth by radical groups and the struggles of Muslim immigrants in the United States.
