Celebrating its 20th year, The Human Rights Watch International Film Festival has never been a more vital chance to explore experiences of human justice and injustice all over the world. During this year’s festival, the true meaning of reconciliation in Rwanda is examined, an Israeli filmmaker goes in search of anti-Semitism in the West (and finds it), Afghanis tryout to become stars on the Afghan version of American Idol, talented young voices offer their perspectives in ten remarkable short films, and much more.
Dates: June 12–25, 2009
The Walter Reade Theater
165 West 65th Street
New York, NY
