You have another chance to see the excellent documentary An Independent Mind and hear it’s author Rex Bloomstein explain why he made a film about human rights that includes the Holocaust historian David Irving.
I reviewed it here when I chaired the debate after the Premiere. It is an entertaining and thought-provoking film about global human rights.
Here is the event description:
Royal Society of Arts on 8 December at 6.30pm. An audience Q&A with BAFTA award-winning director, Rex Bloomstein, chaired by Jonathan Miller, Foreign Affairs Correspondent, Channel 4 News, will follow. Coinciding with the 60th anniversary of the universal declaration of human rights, this unique film gives a voice to eight characters from around the world who have fought to exercise their right to free speech. Their stories include facing the threat of imprisonment for drawing a cartoon, being tortured for writing a poem and being forced into exile for singing a song. This bold and provocative film exposes that it is not just the developing world but also in Western democracies that abuses of freedom of expression are taking place.
