RIGHTS

22 Sep

On the day the country commemorates the declaration of martial law, artists and human rights advocates cried “censorship” over the banning for public exhibition of a collection of short films on human rights.

The collection called Rights gathered young independent filmmakers and human rights advocates to do vignettes on the human rights situation in the Philippines. It was produced by the Free Jonas Burgos Movement, Desaparecidos, Karapatan and the the Southern Luzon Exposure.

The collection was intended to be aired over local television as advertorials. It was scheduled for premiere screening at the IndieSine in Robinson’s Galleria on Saturday, September 22.

The MTRCB said the scenes in the collection “are presented unfairly, one-sided, and undermines the faith and confidence of the government and duly constituted authorities, thus, not for public exhibition.”
