This powerful and compelling film explains human rights through the dramatic story of their history, development and use today.

The Story of Human Rights is the history of human rights, culminating in a single charter that contains them all: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. But with the grim reality of widespread human rights abuses today, this film tells where human rights must begin in order to produce decisive change in the wider world. The DVD includes as a bonus feature 30 award-winning public service announcements illustrating each of the articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
A companion booklet to The Story of Human Rights film, this publication provides a basic introduction to human rights, outlining their development into the modern human rights system. It introduces the reader to the most important human rights instruments and advises actions anyone can take to increase awareness of human rights and their zone of influence.
