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.Our organization sees film as a powerful tool to vividly bring human rights violations to the forefront of the dialogue, as well as capturing the hearts and minds of the audience. This year, our festival will show a mix of feature films, documentaries, and short films to attract a general audience as well as specialists.  

 

Prison Sisters


Sweden | 2016 | 90’ | Feature Documentary Film
Director: Nima Sarvestani

Twenty-year-old Afghan woman Sara lives in Sweden, and for the first time, she experiences the feeling of true freedom, something she enjoyed very little of at home. There, Sara was sentenced to prison for defying her family and running away with the man she loved. Maryam Ebrahimi and Nima Sarvestani, creators of the successful documentary No Burqas Behind Bars, helped her find safety in Europe. Since then, Sara has been waiting for asylum in Sweden and maintains a long-distance relationship with her husband, who does not agree with her new, emancipated behaviour. However, she has other worries too. Her best friend Nadjibeh, with whom she was very close in prison, is still in Afghanistan. Filmmaker Nima Sarvestani heads to Kabul to look for her. Was she actually murdered, as initial clues suggest?

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。

監獄姐妹


瑞典 | 2016 | 90’ | 紀錄片
導演: Nima Sarvestani

20歲的阿富汗女性莎拉現居瑞典,在這裡她第一次體驗到了自由的感覺,這是她在阿富汗難以享受的奢侈。在阿富汗的家裡,她因違抗家人意願,與她所愛的男人私奔而被判入獄。一部成功的紀錄片《監獄裡沒有罩袍》的創作者瑪利亞姆·伊布拉希米和尼瑪·薩爾維斯塔尼幫助莎拉在歐洲找到了安全的住所。從那以後,她一直在等待瑞典政府的政治庇護,並與她丈夫保持著分居兩地的狀態,然而她丈夫不同意她新的解放行為。同時,她也有其他擔憂,她的獄中好友納吉貝,此刻還在阿富汗。尼瑪·薩爾維斯塔尼前往阿富汗喀布爾尋找納吉貝。是否就像最初的線索顯示的那樣,納吉貝真的被謀殺了?

1905 International Human Rights Film Festival

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.
