Abstract

A collectivist project bridging disciplinary divides and bringing theory and practice together, African Cinema and Human Rights finds a starting point in the strongly held conviction that moving images have a significant role to play in advancing the causes of justice and fairness. Underpinning the design of African Cinema and Human Rights is the assumption that moving images narrowly defined (as representations) and broadly construed (as intertwined with specific practices of production and reception) have the potential to advance human rights in a number of ways.
