Screening Rights Festival: But They Can't Break Stones
B-FILM presents the inaugural Screening Rights Film Festival, a three-day programme of film and discussion at mac birmingham.
The need for heartfelt films about the depths of human adversity around the world has grown enormously in recent decades. This new film festival will bring some of the best and most interesting of these films to Birmingham.
The festival programme combines screenings of highly acclaimed social justice films with post screening discussions involving directors, producers, writers, activists and experts.
Screening Rights is a new venture aiming to inspire and develop debates on the potential of film to affect personal, social and political change.
Nepal’s civil war ended almost ten years ago, and its effects are still very visible, especially in terms of women’s rights. Violence against women is very common in Nepal and there are many women’s rights organisations trying to combat it, as well as improve women’s access to education in the aftermath of the conflict.
