On Thursday nights this October, American University is hosting their annual Human Rights Film Series.

Presented by AU’s Center for Social Media and Center for Human Rights & Humanitarian Law, the films cover a variety of human rights issues, including euthanasia, immigration and a warlord-turned-evangelical-preacher.

The series takes place at AU’s Katzen Arts Center on Thursday nights from 5:30pm-8:00pm through October 20th. Each screening includes a discussion with the filmmakers and human rights advocates, and the program offers further resources for each film’s topic on their website.

All of the films are free and open to the public, but the series’ organizers suggest you arrive early because seating is limited.

Joanna moved to DC in 2010 knowing she’d love it, and as usual she was right. She enjoys eating fried things, drinking scotch and smoking cigars, and makes up for the damage done by snacking on organic oats and barley and walking long distances to wherever with her dog Henry. Joanna now lives with her husband and said dog in Los Angeles, and they all miss DC terribly. Follow her on Twitter or contact her at
