Human Rights Film Festival
Carmel High School's Human Rights Club has organized a three-day film festival to raise awareness about the genocide in Darfur, the problem of unfair trade, and the prolonged civil war in Uganda. The event will take place on April 16-18. Admittance is free but the age minimum is 14 years old. Starting at 2:30pm, the festival will be held in Casey Hall at Carmel High School. While each day of the festival will end around 5:00pm, the final day will end at a later time. A documentary will be screened each day of the festival. The Devil Came on Horseback, which exposes the atrocities occurring in Darfur, will be shown on April 16th. The next day Black Gold, a film that focuses on unfair trade in the coffee industry, will be screened. On the final day of the festival there will be a double screening. The first film, Invisible Children, is about the prolonged civil war in Uganda that has devastated the country. Forced displacement by the government and the use of child soldiers by rebels are two humanitarian problems that the film uncovers. The final video is Sunday, which reveals hardships faced in displacement camps through the eyes of a Ugandan refugee and an American youth.
