    Confused Human Rights Movies?

    Advertisements
    Hello All,

    I need to watch a movie on human rights (particularly of the international kind) for a class. Anyone have one they watched and enjoyed?

    TIA!

    Does it have to be a documentary? Blood diamond kinda touches on human rights issues but I don't know how accurate it is

    It doesn't have to be a documentary, just based on human rights events.

    The Color Purple? Possessing the Secret of Joy is another good one....that is a novel by the same author that they made into a movie- not great quality, but if you can find it, worth a look.

    I recently watch Paper Clips. Very heartfelt on a Tennessee school trying to teach about the Holocaust. Really interesting take on all types of stereotypes.

    Frybread's list is really good.

    Sometime in April is good and about the Rwandan genocide.

    I have more documentaries than films.

    There's a movie about Nelson Mendela's prison guard that I cannot remember the name of... Wait it's The Color of Freedom.
