[Perspectives] Resistance to injustice

Some of the most compelling films at this year’s Human Rights Watch Film Festival in London, UK, show women battling the established political, social, or moral order. “We have not just women directors this year, we have a group of films that show central female characters very strongly pushing back against society in one way or another”, said John Biaggi, the festival’s creative director. Half of the 14 award-winning international documentary and feature films in the festival, which Biaggi and his team selected from more than 500 entries, are directed by women.
