United Nations Association Film Festival and Traveling Film Festival Day 1

The Affront to/the Art of HUMAN DIGNITY

11 May 2013 | 16:00 – 22:00

Location: 31, av Bosquet, Paris

Conceived in 1998 at Stanford University by film critic and educator Jasmina Bojic in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UNAFF screens documentaries by international filmmakers dealing with topics such as human rights, environmental survival, women’s issues, children, refugee protection, racism, universal education, war and peace. By bringing together filmmakers, the academic community, and the general public, UNAFF offers a unique opportunity for creative exchange and education among groups and individuals often separated by geography, ethnicity, or economic constraints.
