[The Hankyoreh, May 15 2008] Seoul Human Rights Film Festival takes it to the streets

Festival will be held on the streets of Daehangno to protest gov’t censorship

The 12th Seoul Human Rights Film Festival will be held later this month - on the streets. On May 14, the Sarangbang Group for Human Rights, the festival organizer, said it will hold this year’s festival on the streets of Daehangno, which is known as a neighborhood for young people, but not as a movie theater. With the theme “We rate their ratings,” the festival organizers chose to hold the festival in Daehangno to protest against a series of restrictions on freedom of expression imposed by the government’s movie ratings system.
