CHRI Film festival addresses human rights issues

The Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative’s (CHRI) inaugural film festival, “Matter of Rights(s)” was successfully held at the University of Delhi on March 24-25, and at Jamia Millia Islamia on March 27. The festival featured nearly a dozen critically-acclaimed films and documentaries from India and abroad, selected for their thematic focus as well as cinematic merit.

Exploring issues of marginalization, police excesses and injustice through the lens of cinema, the festival sought to generate debate and sensitize students on human rights abuses around the world and encourage viewers to question the mistakes of the past.
