The ‘Human Rights & Visual Cutlure’ publication is based on a youth seminar which was organised by NISI MASA, together with its Turkish members NISI MASA Turkey/VideA, in Ankara in November 2005. This cross-cultural seminar gathered almost 30 participants from 14 European countries and the local audiences of Ankara. It dealt with the promotion of Human Rights values through cinema and visual culture. Besides encouraging intercultural dialogue, the organisers of this unique encounter intended to raise awareness concerning the importance of making a broader use of audiovisual works and tools to promote human rights in Europe.
The texts contained today in this book result from the presentations and discussions held during this week-long event. Divided in two main sections, this e-book consists first of 12 national presentations, themselves sorted under 3 main themes: “Censorship”, “Minorities”, “Media ethics”. For example, the 6th text explores the representation of gays and lesbians in Italian cinema with references to filmmakers like Pier P. Pasolini, Luchino Visconti, Ettore Scola, Ferzan Ozpetek, etc.
The second part of our publication is a transcription of the public panel discussions that gathered Turkish and International experts and artists. These discussions are again subdivided in several themes: “Human rights violation and censhorship”, “Independent cinema and human rights”,”Media and monopolisation” and “Alternative media”.
The book is illustrated throughout with full colour photographs.
