This week, Adam and Kevin take a look at the 2018 Human Rights Watch Film Festival and review two films screening this year with Charm City and The Distant Barking of Dogs. Other films from the festival discussed include Women of Venezuelan Chaos, Anote's Ark, and The Cleaners.
Instead of an impersonal chronicle, Simon Lereng Wilmont brings an intimate, stirring portrayal of life during wartime in The Distant Barking of Dogs, a film that focuses on the life of a 10-year-old boy living on Ukraine’s front lines.
Powerful, heart-wrenching and vitally important, Margarita Cadenas’ timely documentary Women of Venezuelan Chaos provides an intimate look at the atrocities occurring right now in Venezuela, despite their oppressive government continuously trying to cover it up.
