              Winner of Best Human Rights Documentary at Galway Film Fleadh 2014 and the Green Rose for Best Documentary with a Global Message at the Jaipur International Film Festival 2015, 'African Pride' shares the stories of lesbian women in South Africa’s townships who are meeting prejudice and violence with visibility. South Africa's Constitution was the first in the world to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. But rights belie the reality for many. Homophobia has found violent expression in assaults, rape and murders. In South African townships lesbian women are frequently the targets of some of the most brutal of these attacks, their sexuality condemned as un-African, un-Christian and unacceptable. However there is growing movement of people who are responding to this violence and prejudice by taking to the streets. They hold memorials. They protest. They celebrate Pride in their townships. These demonstrations are noisy, colourful and courageous and they have become impossible to ignore. Each person bearing a banner has their own reason to be visible and it is through these stories that "African Pride' explores this determined, relentless and colourful movement.

                It's Sexual Assault Awareness Month, so I thought I'd share this short film inspired by the poem In Detention, by Christian van Wyk. Victim blaming is an intrinsic part of the rape culture and systematic shaming/ oppression of women. It happens in every country, in every language, by people of all classes, races and genders. It's time we put a stop to it. Please like, share and comment. Transcript: The Accusers She was drunk and asking for it. She wore a short skirt. She walked through an alley at three A.M.

                  K2 AND THE INVISIBLE FOOTMEN Directed by Iara Lee Cinematography/Editing by Jawad Sharif Located on the border between Pakistan and China, K2 is the second-highest mountain on Earth. For many climbers, it is an even greater prize than Everest, with limited routes, a steeper ascent, and a harder push to its summit. Nicknamed the 'Savage Mountain,' K2's peak is so much higher than the rest of the surrounding range that it juts unprotected into the atmosphere, regularly exposing climbers to life-threatening weather conditions. In 2008, a tragic disaster on K2 claimed the lives of 11 mountaineers. Four of those who lost their lives in the disaster were porters hired to carry the equipment and provisions of foreign climbing expeditions. Despite being paid at rates far below those received by international expedition leaders, such porters – whether they provide critical supplies to expedition base camps or take on higher-altitude tasks in support of ascending climbers – take on difficult and dangerous work. These efforts make them worthy of recognition as the true heroes of mountaineering. In K2 AND THE INVISIBLE FOOTMEN, filmmaker Iara Lee and her team chronicle the lives of those who make possible ascents of the world's tallest mountains, including both Pakistani porters and Nepalese sherpas. The film also follows the first official all-Pakistani climbing team, made up of former porters. This team successfully summited in 2014, on the 60th anniversary of the first ascent of the mountain. Amid breathtaking scenery, the film depicts the everyday sacrifices of porters and the courage of those indigenous climbers who choose to return to scale K2 in spite of past tragedies. In their striving to perfect their craft, these mountaineers provide a fresh look into the cultures and national traditions of Pakistan, a country typically portrayed in the foreign media as merely a land of conflict and sectarian strife.

                    As part of our 'Chile 1973-2013: Memory, Accountability and Reparation' week of events, we held a panel discussing the significance of the judgement in the case of García Lucero and others v. Chile. Panellists included: Mr and Mrs García, Carla Ferstman (Director of Redress), Lorna McGregor (Director, Human Rights Centre), and Dr Clara Sandoval (Department of Law and Human Rights Centre). From the Guardian's website: 'Leopoldo García Lucero is a torture survivor from General Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship. He won a landmark case against Chile before the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, the America's highest human rights court. He is the first living survivor of human rights violations during the dictatorship to have his case decided by the court.'
