The Story of Human Rights — NR, 2013, 10 mintues. The Story of Human Rights is a drama of persistent struggle and steady advance, often against heavy odds. And with human rights comes peace and the means to freedom. It is important to understand the subject of human rights within its historical framework, a tradition that stretches back more than 2,500 years. This striking new short film defines, simply and concisely, the history of one of the world’s most misunderstood subjects: human rights. If you’re human, this film is about you.
