HUMAN RIGHTS

PERMISSION

Duration: 6 minutes.

Director: Kaye Tuckerman, USA

The end of 2017 presents a new awakening in the acceptance of sexual harassment and abuse allegations in the home, arts, media and politics. Choreographer Ari Groover, wanted to explore the long term effects of this abuse on both women and men, victim and perpetrator, and that culture that allows powerful individuals to abuse that power sexually, and remain unaccountable. In this story guilt plays an important part, especially when this guilt attacks the abuser’s conscience, and holds the individual accountable for their own actions.


Nice 14/07/2016

Duration: 2 minutes.

Director: Gisele Nour, Australia

Based on the 2016 terror attack in Nice, France, this autobiographical-inspired animated short film explores the immediacy and shock of violence, and its conversely lingering impact. Employing a range of handmade, tactile materials and an experimental structure, this narrative is a glimpse into the disparity between a holiday and a haunting.


SYRIA’S TENT CITIES

Duration: 30 minutes.

Director: Mira Hamour, USA

Many Syrian refugee children around the world don’t have access to a basic education, and this becomes a barrier to them growing up to be literate, self-sufficient, contributing members of their society.

Some refugees are living illegally in neighboring countries, while others have been resettled permanently halfway across the world in Canada. This film examines the lives of the Syrian refugees on both sides of the globe, as they slowly improve their situation through the efforts of two individuals who have dedicated their lives to making education and inclusivity a right for all Syrian children.


Screenings are followed by a Panel discussion about humanitarian work in the Middle East and the future of refugees in the region.
