Human Rights Film Series: It's a Girl

February 15, 2013 - 7:00 pm

The seventh annual UC Merced Human Rights Film Series continues Feb. 15 with "It's a Girl." 

Sponsored by the School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts, the Center for Research in the Humanities and Arts, and the Office of Student Life, the films look at human rights issues around the world. 

Each film begins at 7 p.m in Classroom and Office Building, Room 116. The screenings are free and open to the public. 

Feb. 15 - "It's a Girl"
"It’s a Girl" is a documentary about the practices in India, China and many other parts of the world in which girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls. The film asks why is this happening, and why so little is being done to save girls and women. Director Evan Grae Davis will make an appearance at the screening.

Feb. 22 - "Reportero"
Veteran reporter Sergio Haro and his colleagues at Zeta, a Tijuana-based weekly, work in one of the most deadly places in the world for journalists today. Despite murderous attacks on their staff, the paper continues to tackle dangerous subjects such as the drug cartels' infiltration of political circles and security forces.
