The international festival featuring documentary films on human rights is currently the largest documentary festival focused on human rights in the world. Organised by People in Need, the festival works with a broad definition of human rights, and therefore in addition to films about political causes and development themes, the programme also includes films about social issues, the environment and lifestyles.
One World is a place to exchange views and experience, the audience will have an opportunity to discuss the films with their creators as well as professionals in specific areas.
One World opens with Gods of Molenbeek, which looks at the question of identity through the childhood of three inseparable friends from the Brussels neighborhood of Molenbeek, which became infamous in the media as the home of Islamic radicals. Although they all come from radically different worlds, they go in search together for answers to questions related to Islam, Christianity, and belief in the true god. Their harmonic co-existence is disturbed by terrorist attacks that were prepared and planned in the neighborhood they call home. The film will be presented in person by director Reetta Huhtanen.
