Oscar Arias: Without a Shot Fired

Our opening night film on Wednesday, November 15, is the story of a tiny country that made a decision to do something that no other country had ever done —  to abolish its army and declare peace to the world.

Warehoused: The Forgotten Refugees of Dadaab

Our opening night film on Thursday, November 16, explores the plight of long-term refugees through a glimpse into the lives of those living in Dadaab, Kenya, one of the world’s largest refugee camps. We see the camp’s inner workings through one man’s journey to do everything in his power to provide for his family.

Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock

Our opening night film on Friday, November 17, follows the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota as they captured the world’s attention through their peaceful resistance against the U.S. government’s plan to construct an oil pipeline through their land.

The mission of the North Dakota Human Rights Film and Arts Festival is to educate, engage, and facilitate discussion around local and world-wide human rights topics through the work of filmmakers and artist. 2017 is the inaugural year for both festivals.

The North Dakota Human Rights Film Festival will take place November 15, 16 and 17, 2017, at the Fargo Theater in Fargo, North Dakota. The festival encourages filmmakers who have produced documentary, narrative or experimental films that engage human rights related topics or themes to submit their work to the festival.

The North Dakota Human Rights Arts Festival will be exhibited November 13, 2017 through January 4, 2018 at the Spirit Room in Fargo, North Dakota. A public reception and awards ceremony will be held at The Spirit Room on Saturday, November 18 from 5 to 7.
