UCSB students FREE 6th Annual Santa Barbara Human Rights Film Festival Wed, Apr 27 / CAMPBELL HALL 4 PM - War Don Don “An extremely well-made documentary.” The Boston Globe This moving documentary profiling war crimes trials in Sierra Leone puts audiences at the center of both the gripping tale of rebel leader Issa Sesay and a crucial public debate about the complexities of international law in its pursuit of justice and truth. (Rebecca Richman Cohen, 2010, 85 min.) 7 PM - Nostalgia for the Light “The beauty of… the many metaphors and surprising parallels between the universe, archaeology and Chile’s recent past rise organically from the material.” Variety Set in Chile’s Atacama Desert, where harsh heat keeps human remains intact – mummies, explorers, miners, political prisoners – astronomers gather to study a translucent sky while women dig through the soil in search of loved ones who disappeared during the Pinochet regime. (Patricio Guzmán, 2010, 90 min.) 9 PM - Mugabe and the White African “This film is an unmissable portrait of courage under fire.” The Guardian, London Michael Campbell is one of a few hundred white farmers left in Zimbabwe since President Robert Mugabe began his violent land seizure program in 2000.
