My 10 Favourite “Human Rights” Films

In no particular order:

1)      Blood Diamond (2006)

2)      The Kite Runner (2007)

3)      Dead Man Walking (1995)

4)      The Killing Fields (1984)

5)      Amazing Grace (2007)

6)      Catch a Fire (2006)

7)      Hunger (2008)

8)      Hotel Rwanda (2004)

9)      The Green Mile (1999)

10)    Where Do We Go Now? (2012)

I specifically left out movies dealing with the Holocaust, such as ‘Schindler’s List’ (1993), ‘Life is Beautiful’ (1997) and ‘The Pianist’ (2002), to focus on other issues.
