(De)humanizing? Critiquing Representations of Human Rights in Film

October 28, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


How can media and film fetishize, be dehumanizing or further shape the discussion around human rights. How are human rights represented, reinforced or challenged in film? What goes into making human rights representation authentic? What are the hurdles in achieving authentic human rights representation?

Examine what you know about human rights representation in media by joining Alessandra Santos and William Brown on 28 October 2022 at the Place of Many Trees, UBC Vancouver! 

This panel, first of three seminars on challenging human rights stereotypes, questions the role of media and film in human rights work. We seek to deepen our understanding of how to represent human rights violations and work in an ethical and constructive manner.
