2007 NY Human Rights Watch International Film Festival Schedule


Just a short note to mention that the 2007 New York Human Rights Watch International Film Festival schedule has been posted at the HRW.org website, along with the film descriptions. The festival runs from June 14-28. On my short list of films to see are:

• The opening night film, Mon Colonel by veteran political filmmaker, Costa-Gavras,

• Marcel Sch├╝pbach's Carla's List on the inner workings of the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague,

• Katy Chevigny's Election Day whose previous collaborative documentary, Deadline was a highlight from HRWIFF 04,

• James Longley's Sari's Mother, the extracted "fourth vignette" from Iraq in Fragments,

• Jennifer Baichwal's Manufactured Landscapes,

• Chema Rodriguez's Railroad All-Stars, whose DVD in Spain I've been eyeing since it was released earlier this year,

• Steven Okazaki's White Light/Black Rain on the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
