Seeing is believing: Handicams, Human Rights & The News (Canada, 58 min)
Dir. by Katerina Cizek and Peter Wintonick.
Joey Lozano never parts with his handicam as he documents rights abuses in the Philippines. But does Joey's camera prevent violence or jeopardize lives? More than 150 million handicams have been sold worldwide since they hit the market in 1985, and they're being used for much more than weddings and family vacations. From Welsh grannies filming noisy neighbors to forensic anthropologists unearthing mass graves, filmmakers Katerina Cizek and Peter Wintonick examine the phenomena that has made people worldwide take action to document realities that the rest of United States would otherwise easily ignore.
