Screening Rights is a new venture by Michele Aaron and John Horne at the University of Birmingham. Screening Rights aims to be a space to inspire and develop debates on the relationships between film, vulnerability, human adversity, and social action.
We kicked off 2015 with a buzzing panel discussion following the screening of the much-lauded documentary Concerning Violence at MAC Birmingham on Friday 9th January.
Our next event, part of the University of Birmingham’s ‘Arts and Science Festival’, is on Wednesday March 18th at 6.30pm. ‘Film and Human Rights: Local Stories and Bigger Pictures’ combines the second annual showcase of films from the School’s Initiative with a special screening of the Basque film Sons and Daughters of the Alarde (2013). We’re delighted to have the director, Jone Karres, joining us for the evening and Q&A with Rob Stone. For more information, see our latest news item.
