Gods of Molenbeek to open One World in Brussels


The film Gods of Molenbeek will open the One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival on 23 April in BOZAR. The 13th edition of this unique event again brings the international human rights community together for a series of screenings of cutting edge documentaries and discussions with notable guests across Brussels.  From 23 to 30 April, a selection of outstanding documentaries will be screened at various Brussels venues including European Parliament and the House of European History, drawing attention to serious human rights violations around the world at the premises of important European institutions.

This year, the festival will highlight the current crisis in Venezuela, freedom of the media in Russia, recent events in Poland, and contemporary situation in Iraq. Each screening will be followed by a discussion with human right defenders, journalists and academics. One World in Brussels once again presents the selection of the best movies from One World in Prague, the biggest human rights documentaries festival in the world, awarded also by UNESCO for its contribution to human rights education. 

 “We are glad that we collaborate with a number of Brussels-based non-governmental organizations that deal with various human rights issues, helping us to provide more context in the debates. As every year, we are expecting among the visitors also those who can have direct impact on the issues discussed and help in resolving them,” says Zuzana Gruberová from the organizing NGO People in Need.

One World in Brussels is organized by People in Need, Czech Permanent Representation to the EU, and Czech Centre Brussels together with local NGOs and other partners. All screenings (except for the opening) are free. You can find complete program of the 13th annual One World in Brussels, the full list of partners and guests at oneworld.cz/brussels.
