The Human Rights Watch Film Festival returns to MOPA on February 1 – 4, 2018.
Now in its eighth year, the festival presents a unique program encompassing six films and discussions that address a wide range of human rights issues from around the world.

The films inspire viewers to picture a better world and take action to create it.
Visiting Morning Extra is Film Director Erik Ljung, who's an Ocean Beach resident and former SDSU Graduate, along with Joaquin Ortiz, Director of Innovation at the museum.
