November 29, 2018


Brandon, MB – The City of Brandon’s Community Development Section extends an invite to all members of the public to join them for a free documentary screening to recognize Human Rights Day 2018.

Marked each year on December 10th, Human Rights Day was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948 to draw attention to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the common standard of achievement for all people of all nations. Each year, The City of Brandon works to recognize the human rights movement with a theme to frame the conversations of the day. This year’s event is themed around the global topic of human displacement and features a screening of “Human Flow”, a documentary about the massive human migration that has taken place across the globe since World War Two, directed by internationally-renowned artist Ai Weiwei.

This year’s Human Rights Day event will take place on Monday, December 10th, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. within the City of Brandon Cultural Resource Centre, located at 638 Princess Avenue (Door, ‘B’, East Entrance). A welcome and introduction will be provided by Pat Daniels from the Manitoba Human Rights Commission. “Human Flow” is rated PG-13 and more information about the 2 hour, 20-minute film can be found here.
