Tuesday, 27 March 2012

Two of the photographic exhibitions running at the 10th Human Rights Film Festival, to take place from April 20-27, are now open. The exhibitions Schools from other worlds, by Kim Manresa, has been on at the Aiete Culture Centre since January, and Gervasio Sánchez’s Missing started running yesterday at the Okendo Culture Centre. Both are currently open for viewing.

Like every year, the Human Rights Film Festival movie programme is complemented with different parallel activities and exhibitions.

27 January – 29 April

A selection of 50 photographs by the renowned photo journalist Kim Manresa portraying the reality of the right to education in 30 countries across the world seen through the expression on boys’ and girls’ faces. Different schools, sometimes improvised; schoolchildren of different races and conditions, but all with a shared wish: to learn, to share and to exercise their right to education.

22 March – 5 May

Missing represents the most outstanding work in Gervasio Sánchez’s long career as a photo journalist. His images constitute a valuable legacy which will ensure in the future that we will have no doubt as to the past. This is a disturbing testimony revealing the cruel emptiness of absence as it struggles to rescue from oblivion the buried memory of people missing in ten countries across Latin America, Asia and Europe.

This extensive project, developed between 1998 and 2010, powerfully emerges to vindicate memory, truth and justice in a geography martyrized by intolerable abuses.
