watch it: “What Image Opened Your Eyes to Human Rights?”

Today is the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and in this video, staff from Witness talk about images that opened their eyes to human rights abuses around the world:

You can answer the video’s call to action — asking you to discuss what images opened your eyes — at Witness. Or feel free to post a comment here, too.

I started the “web video of the day” feature a little over a year ago in reponse to a presentation I attended at the Margaret Mead Film Festival at the American Museum of Natural History last autumn about how the Web is changing how we communicate, how it’s changing documentary filmmaking, and how it’s opening up media to everyone (and getting it out of the grasp of big corporations and their biases and influences). One of the speakers there was from Witness, so it seems fitting to come back to the organization a year later.
