In the Name of Good and Evil (english)
12 Sep 2002
The First United Nations Association Film Festival Extension
Program in Boston presents "In the Name of Good and Evil",
ten documentaries showcasing struggles for justice and dignity
at Harvard University - JFK School of Government, September 20-21.
Press release. September 10, 2002 (Boston, MA) The United
Nations Association of Greater Boston (UNAGB) hosts the
first United Nations Association Film Festival Extension
Program (UNAFF) in Boston on September 20-21, at Harvard
University's JFK School of Government. The world's only
public film forum for exploring UN related issues, the UNAFF
presents a traveling film festival event that offers a
unique chance to view films that are rarely screened for a
public audience in order to become familiar with global
problems and to provide a better understanding of the means
of addressing those problems.

Issues from landmines and selling arms to developing
countries, to the studies of South Africa's Truth and
Reconciliation Commission (TRC); from deaths on the US'
Mexican border, to an insider view of gay issues in Zimbabwe
and genital circumcision in Uganda; from the major global
tobacco companies' campaigns in India, to the story about
the first Afro-Brazilian woman to be elected to Brazil's
senate; from activists who are behind more than 2,400
incidents of violence against doctors and abortion clinics
in the US, to Native American issues and atomic bombing are
explored. The UNAFF is more than a film festival; it is an
invitation to take part in the most pressing international
and national debates facing the global population today.

The first UNAFF Extension Program Boston, sponsored by
Softscape, Inc, The Harvard Coop, Berlitz International
Language Center and The Mexican Consulate, will take place
on September 20 and 21, 2002, Harvard University at the JFK
School of Government, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
