Sunday, January 26, 2014

This screening is presented by The Neda Nobari Foundation

3:00 pm | Doors Open; Pre-reception and Screening of Chapman Student Documentary Short "We are the Land"

4:00 pm | Screening of "Bidder 70", followed by panel discussion

6:15 pm | Reception with wine and light hors d'oeuvres

Winner of 20 prestigious film festival awards, BIDDER 70 follows the story of Tim DeChristopher and his incredible act of civil disobediance. As Bidder #70, Tim derailed a last minute, widely disputed federal Bureau of Land Management Oil and Gas lease auction, acting to safeguard thousands of acres of Utah land. For his disruption of the auction, Tim was indicted on two federal charges and served nearly two years in prison.

Human Rights Watch documents and exposes the human rights implications of environmental degradation and has succeeded in bringing environment-related human rights violations to light, and has pressed decision-makers to amend abusive policies and practices.

Victoria Riskin, past president of the Writer's Guild of America West, will moderate the panel discussion following the screening. Panelists include co-producing/co-directing team Beth and George Gage, and Joe Amon, Director of HRW's Health and Human Rights Division.

Guests are also invited to a pre-reception starting at 3pm in the Leadership Center of the Moss Theater. We will show the award-winning student documentary short "We Are The Land," followed by a discussion with the filmmakers and Sally Rubin, Professor of Documentary Film at Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts.

Through regularly-scheduled screenings and discussions, the Human Rights Watch Film Club in Los Angeles creates a forum to advance awareness of human rights issues and empower audiences with the knowledge that personal commitment can make a difference. Proceeds from this event will support the work of Human Rights Watch around the world.
