Music & Human Rights

In times and places where hardly no one dared to speak, it is music that played in full force and brazenness for human rights. Several of the festival films this year deal with musicians who refused to bow their heads in the face of oppression or tyranny and decided to harness the power of music for social and personal change. Their journeys range between different styles and do not always end in success or fame, however, they do succeed in cracking the thickest of walls.
