2006 NY Human Rights Watch Schedule
Human Rights Watch International Film Festival has posted their New York schedule. There seems to be far fewer Latin American-themed films this year compared to their strong showing last year, but the film description for Rosita alone seems to indicate the quality of films from this region remains impeccable. The winner of the Nestor Almendros Prize this year is James Longley's Iraq in Fragments, so the quick temptation is to attend the festival on the opening weekend. That said, Shari Robertson and Michael Camerini's work in progress documentary, My American Dream: How Democracy Works sounds right up my alley, so I may opt for that weekend instead.
