Summer Human Rights Film Program: Axis of Light
July 16, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Axis of Light
(60 minutes / Director: Nichola Bruce, Pia Getty / Producer: Pia Getty)
Axis of Light is a poignant observation through the work of eight leading artists–to discover the beauty and mystery of the Middle East, which is often ignored, especially today where strife, anger and violence demand center stage in our media, and where stereotypes and prejudices distort our view of this region. Through their eyes, the film moves between the worlds of both the East and the West and the past and present, exploring the meaning of their existence, identity, conflicts of sexuality, the isolation of woman and the fragility of home and place. It is a story of hope, but one that recognizes the power of expression, often against all odds. This film was screened at the 2012 United Nations Association Film Festival.
