Event Details

We would like to proudly announce the program for the 1905 International Human Rights Film Festival in Hong Kong from May 17th - 27th. The 1905 Human Rights Film Festival (HRFF) aims to raise awareness about human rights violations through film screenings and discussions with filmmakers and activists.

Jackson

USA | 2016 | 92’ | Documentary Film
Director: Maisie Crow

The last abortion clinic in Mississippi faces daily protests against its activities by Catholic pressure groups as well as citizens. This documentary follows the stories of 3 women with different stances on abortion, thus framing the American debate about the artificial interruption of pregnancy. The views of Shannon, an employee at the clinic, and pro-life activist Barbara are in direct conflict. Somewhere in between is young April, who is dealing with her fifth unplanned pregnancy. The director uses a purely observational approach that is neither judgmental nor does it minimise the decisions faced by the women. The film also reveals the social atmosphere of the American South and the pressure that influential lobby groups exert to pass stricter laws.

Awards:
Best Documentary, Portland Film Festival
Outstand Courage in Filmmaking "Golden Strands Award, Tallgrass Film Festival
Best Documentary, New Orleans Film Festival


1905國際人權電影節將於本年5月17日至27日在香港舉辦。 1905人權電影節旨在通過電影放映和與電影製片人對話活動來討論以至提高大眾對人權的認識。我們組織認為電影是可以把人權議題生動地向大眾傳遞的有力工具。 今年,我們的電影節為大家搜羅不同類型的故事片,紀錄片和短片,香港觀眾們不能錯過。

傑克遜城

美國 | 2016 | 92’ |紀錄片
導演:Maisie Crow

這是密西西比州傑克遜城的最後一家墮胎診所,他們每天都要面對來自天主教組織和其他市民的反對示威。這部紀錄片採訪了在墮胎上具有不同立場的三個人,從而勾畫出美國人對人工流產的討論圖景:Shannon 和Barbara ,一位是墮胎診所的工作人員,一位是珍愛生命的反對人士,她們是整場衝突的主角;夾在中間的是April,一位正面對自己第五次意外懷孕的年輕女孩。導演採用了非常純粹的旁觀者角度,既不作評判也不弱化衝突。本片還揭示了美國南方的社會氛圍和遊說團體對通過更嚴格的相關法律的影響力。

The 1905 International Human Rights Film Festival (HRFF) aims to raise awareness about human rights violations through film screenings and discussions with filmmakers and activists. Through our festival, we hope to offer both Mainland Chinese and foreign filmmakers a platform to exhibit their works to an audience that is otherwise rarely confronted with such topics.
