Tuesday, 10 December 2013

Runtime: 85'

FruitvaleStationTo mark Human Rights Day and the 20th anniversary of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the United Nations, in partnership with the European Union and BOZAR, presents:

"Fruitvale Station"

Winner of both the Grand Jury Prize for dramatic feature and the Audience Award for U.S. dramatic film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, director Ryan Coogler's Fruitvale Station follows the last 24 hours in the life of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old resident of the San Francisco Bay area, who was shot dead by a transport cop in the early hours of 2009. It's a sharp, earthy, convincing film about a true-life case; and a heartfelt memorial to the man at its centre

Followed by a special performance by:

"Shine Your Light"

'Shine Your Light' will be performed by Dutch creative group PiPs-Lab. Each member of the audience will be given a small light and asked to reply to questions relating to human rights by shinning their lights. The answers are then projected on to a big screen. An extraordinary magical experience ensues.

The performance is followed by a reception.
