We are thrilled that 3 WMM sponsored films are included in the Human Rights Watch Film Festival lineup for NYC including: CODED BIAS (dir. Shalini Kantayya), DOWN A DARK STAIRWELL (dir. Ursula Liang, prod. Rajal Pitroda), and FROM HERE (dir. Christina Antonakos-Wallace, prod. Amy Benson). For the first time, the festival is presenting the lineup digitally making the films available nationwide! Don’t miss this incredible roster of 11 films (8 of which are directed by women) that cover vital topics such as reproductive rights in Ireland in THE 8TH (dirs. Aideen Kane, Maeve O’Boyle, Lucy Kennedy) and human rights abuses in women’s prisons in the opening night film, BELLY OF THE BEAST (dir. Erika Cohn).
