What Tomorrow Brings
Human Rights Watch Film Festival at the Museum of Photographic Arts
The Human Rights Watch Film Festival returns to the Museum of Photographic Arts on February 2 - 5, 2017.  The film festival brings to light human rights abuses through storytelling in a way that challenges each individual to empathize and demand justice for all people.
From the critical importance of a free and independent press (All Governments Lie) to racism in America (I Am Not Your Negro) to the realities facing Syrian refugees risking their lives in search of safety (The Crossing) this year's program will provide opportunities to discuss critical issues facing our country today.

Please visit MOPA.org/hrwff for additional information and to purchase tickets. Festival passes cover admission to all six festival screenings. Passes and single screening tickets are available online and at the door.
