On Tuesday 18 March, we held our annual Film Festival Benefit which marked the start of the 2014 Human Rights Watch Film Festival in London. The evening featured the screening of THE SQUARE with Q&A at the Curzon Mayfair Cinema, followed by a reception at Dartmouth House.

THE SQUARE
From the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak's 30-year-long dictatorship in 2011 to the military's removal of Egypt's first democratically elected president in 2013, we follow a group of Egyptian activists as they confront the authorities and security forces to build a new society of conscience. The Square is a truly immersive experience, transporting the viewer into the intense emotional drama and personal stories behind the news.

2014 Academy Award® Nominee for Best Documentary Feature.

For further information about the event, please call our Development and Outreach team on 020 7618 4756 or email londonoutreach@hrw.org.
