Human rights films @ IDFA

Movies that Matter has a special programme at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA).
On Sunday 20 November, a selection of 4 films will be screened, followed by debates. The programme includes Tahrir 2011, which gives a view of the revolution in Egypt from inside, and 5 Broken Cameras, a powerful and personal portrait of a Palestinian village's opposition to encroaching Jewish settlements.
