Award-winning human rights films to be shown at UNCG

This fall, the College of Arts & Sciences is partnering with the Human Rights Research Network to host the Human Rights Film Series at UNCG.

The film series is part of the year-long War & Peace Imagined event series at UNCG. Films in the series include: “Watchers of the Sky” – which was shown on Sept. 8 – “A Separation” (Sept. 29), “Pray the Devil Back to Hell” (Oct. 20) and “The Look of Silence” (Nov. 10).

All films will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the School of Education Building, Room 120. A post-film discussion facilitated by different members of the UNCG community will follow all screenings.

“A Separation,” the next film in the series, will be shown on Sept. 29. The film tells the story of one family’s struggles and desires in post-revolutionary Iran. UNCG history professor Jeff Jones will facilitate the post-film discussion.

The series is free and open to the public. For more information on the film series or upcoming film showings, visit warandpeace.uncg.edu.
