Munich rights watch

World Brief

The Munich Filmfest, running July 15-22, is joining forces with Human Rights Watch for the first time this year, presenting three pics addressing human rights issues.

Robert Edwards’ political satire “Land of the Blind” stars Ralph Fiennes as an idealistic soldier recruited by a former political prisoner (Donald Sutherland) to overthrow the country’s dictator.

Docu “KZ,” by Rex Bloomstein, examines the Austrian town of Mauthausen, site of a WWII concentration camp, while “Punam,” by Lucian Muntean and Natasa Stankovic, chronicles the life of a motherless Nepalese girl who has the rare opportunity to go to school while also taking care of her siblings.

Separately, fest will honor the work of Brit helmer Mike Figgis with a retrospective.
