PHILIPPINES; Human Rights in Context. Reception, Film and Talk

Filmmakers can bring injustices to light and in doing so, create change.  This is my project to expose the greatest human rights violation against journalists in human history, known as the Ampatuan Massacre.  This is your opportunity to learn more, and to meet a man from the Philippines who fights against these injustices every day.  I will also show some of my footage at this event, shot in the Philippines.
