[Event] “KNOW ENFORCED DISAPPEARANCE”, a mini film expo on the global phenomenon of enforced or involuntary disappearance
The Asian Federation Against Involuntary Disappearances (AFAD) and the Families of Victims of Involuntary Disappearance (FIND) in cooperation with the Committee on Human Rights of the House of Representatives invite you to “KNOW ENFORCED DISAPPEARANCE”, a mini film expo on the global phenomenon of enforced or involuntary disappearance. The film showing will be held on 01 March 2012 in Rooms 1&2, RVM Bldg, House of Representatives, 1:00 -4:00 PM.
Slated for screening are: “Unsilenced”, a documentary film on the enforced disappearance of six sub-contractual workers of a paper factory in Agusan del Sur and “Rendition”, a 2007 true-to-life drama film on extraordinary rendition directed by Gavin Hood and starring Reese Witherspoon, Meryl Streep and Jake Gyllenhaal among others.
The film expo aims to promote human rights awareness more particularly of the right against enforced disappearance and to urge the Philippine government to enact an anti-enforced disappearance law and to sign and ratify the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance.
An open discussion will follow after each film showing.
Come join in this collective endeavor and be one with us in making human rights a reality for all.
