Human Rights Film Festival is back!

In partnership with the ArtsPicturehouse we are presenting War Child and Hora Chilena on 21st and 22nd June.

War Child is a shocking and compelling documentary portrait of Palestinian children living amidst armed conflict told through their own words by Bafta award winning director Jezza Neumann who was here last year with his film 'Poor kids.

Hora Chilena paints a portrait of refugees who escaped torture and death during Chile’s brutal 1973 coup and came to live in exile in Britain. This showing coincides with Refugee Week celebrations nationwide. 

All directors will be present after the showing of their films for a Q&A session with the audience! It's an event you don't want to miss, so put the date in your diary: 3pm on Saturday 21st for War Child and 3pm on Sunday 22nd June for Hora Chilena. Full details below.

In January 2009, more than 1300 Palestinians were killed in Gaza. In the wake of this horror, we meet a handful of children, surrounded by rubble and increasingly isolated by the blockade, whose lives have been irreversibly damaged by war. This is a shocking and compelling documentary portrait of children living amidst armed conflict.

HORA CHILENA (CHILEAN TIME) paints a portrait of refugees who escaped torture and death during Chile’s brutal 1973 coup and came to live in exile in Britain. With humour and warmth, the Chileans who settled in Cambridge tell their stories of struggle, loss and adaptation to a different culture, revealing the importance of empanadas and parties, and the compassion of the British people who received them. Without the help of Amnesty International, many of these individuals would not be alive today. “The treatment of Chilean refugees coming to Britain in the 1970s was a model for how it should be done... compared with now.” – Jeremy Corbyn MP
