Very soon it affects his family and his own life. Daily arrests and night raids scare his family; his friends, brothers and also him are either shot or arrested. One Camera after another is shot or smashed, each camera unfolds a part of his story. His story is a story of resistance.

Human Rights Human Wrongs er den eneste filmfestivalen i Norden som hvert år vier hele sitt program til å belyse den aktuelle menneskerettighetssituasjonen i verden. Festivalen består av rundt 20 dokumentarfilmer, fordelt på fire tema: Ikkevoldelige revolusjoner, Status Illegal, Næringsliv og menneskerettigheter samt Kampen for rettferdighet. De fleste filmene er Norgespremierer.

Human Rights Human Wrongs arrangeres i samarbeid mellom Oslo Dokumentarkino, Menneskerettighetshuset i Oslo og Oslosenteret for fred og menneskerettigheter. Billetter til de ulike filmene og debattene kjøpes i døra.
