Summer Human Rights Film Program: “Axis of Light”

Axis of Light is a poignant observation through the work of eight leading artists discovering the beauty of the Middle East, which is often ignored, especially today where strife, anger and violence demand center stage in our media, and where stereotypes and prejudices distort our view of this region. Through their eyes, the film moves between the worlds of both the East and the West and the past and the present, exploring the meaning of their existence, identity, conflicts of sexuality, the isolation of woman and the fragility of home and place. It is a story of hope, but one that recognizes the power of expression, often against all odds. This film was screened at the 2012 United Nations Association Film Festival.
Axis of Light is a part of the Camera As Witness: Reflections on Art Through Documentary Filmmaking Summer Human Rights Program, which is moderated by Jasmina Bojic, Camera As Witness Program Director and Founder of the international documentary film festival, UNAFF.
