Human Rights Watch Film Festival

Location: UCB Room 127

The Human Rights Watch Traveling Film Festival comes to Hilo! Featuring selections from the Human Rights Watch, the films bring to life human rights abuses through storytelling in a way that challenge each individual to empathize and demand justice for all people. The festival will conclude with two films: "Alias Ruby Blade: A Story of Love and Revolution"
at 3:30 p and "Rafea: Solar Mama" at 5:00 pm. "Alias Ruby Blade" is the remarkable love story of a human rights activist and a political prisoner in East Timor. "Rafea: Solar Mama" is an inspiring film about women's empowerment showing how an illiterate Bedouin woman from a poverty-stricken community in the Jordanian desert learns to be a solar-energy engineer at India's Barefoot College. Free admission. For more information, visit
