The Toronto edition of The Human Rights Watch Film Festival kicks off today and runs until April 6th at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Screening in 20 cities around the world throughout the year, the festival uses the medium of film to highlight human rights violations around the world and those standing up to injustice. Over at In the Seats, I reviewed two films screening at the festival: Complicit and Nowhere to Hide. You can find an excerpt of the films’ synopsis, courtesy of the TIFF website, and a link to my reviews below:

TIFF synopsis excerpt: “A courageous factory worker struggling with leukemia helps a group of young Chinese workers who have also been poisoned while making our favourite cell phones and electronic gadgets.”

Review: You can read my review over at In the Seats.

Nowhere to Hide
TIFF synopsis excerpt: “Nowhere to Hide follows male nurse Nori Sharif through five years of dramatic change, providing unique access into one of the world’s most dangerous and inaccessible areas: the “triangle of death” in central Iraq.”

Review: You can read my review over at In the Seats.
