SMU Embrey Human Rights Program Hosts Documentary Fest

Three human rights documentaries will play at the Angelika Film Center on Feb. 9-10.

On Saturday, the festival kicks off with “Call Me Kuchu” at 5 p.m., focusing on homophobic laws in Uganda. Then, “The Invisible War” plays at 7 p.m., which exposes sexual assault in the military. On Sunday, you can catch “Salaam Dunk” at 2 p.m., featuring an all-women’s basketball team in Iraq.

“These films should serve as constant reminders that human rights issues affect everyone, everywhere, in every life situation imaginable,” SMU Embrey Human Rights program director Rick Halperin said in a statement.

SMU’s Embrey Human Rights program co-sponsors the annual event with SNR Denton, Human Rights Watch, the Dallas Film Society, and the Human Rights Initiative of North Texas. Tickets are $10 each or $24 for a weekend pass, and are available for purchase through the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth.

    Do any “typical” (or “stereotypical”?) SMU students actually attend these things? Maybe it should be a requirement, so Biff and Muffy could learn about the real world beyond Young Republican meetings and racist frat parties.
