Human Rights Watch Film FestivalThe annual Human Rights Watch Film Festival this year is spread across four screens city-wide from the Barbican to the British Museum. A powerful collection of films dealing with the subject of global injustice, this year's festival opens with a screening of the UK premiere of 'The Yes Men Are Revolting' at Curzon Soho. There's the UK premiere of 2015 Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Feature 'The Salt of the Earth' at the British Museum, and 'Rosewater' is the closing night film at Ritzy Brixton, a documentary on the months-long imprisonment of the Iranian Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari.

 

About Curzon Soho

This cracking, refurbished Soho cinema shows a broad-range of art-house films. The three screens feature Dolby THX sound and ample leg-room. The regular Sunday double-bills are always worth catching, providing an opportunity to see a true celluloid classic up on the big screen. More about Curzon Soho
