Human Rights Arts and Film FestivalAs part of the 2010 Human Rights Arts and Film Festival starting this Friday, Murdoch’s Lecturers will be part of an expert panel at Cinema Paradiso.

Following the screening of Reel Change – Climate Change Shorts on Sunday May 16, Sustainability Lecturer Dr Brad Pettitt and Associate Lecturer Braden Hill will discuss the inter-related issues of climate change, poverty and human rights.

Event organiser and Murdoch Law/Business student Basha Stasak said the Reel Change shorts’ session examined climate change from Australia to Niger, the Solomon Islands, Indonesia and Russia.

“The Reel Change session explores one of the most important and urgent issues of our time, climate change, and the effect that it is having on human beings worldwide,” Ms Stasak said.

“The shorts’ session uncovers the steps being taken by communities to stop climate change, to manage the transformations occurring in their environment and to ultimately maintain control over their own lives.”

Joining Dr Pettitt and Mr Hill on the panel will be Derek Gerrard of Greensense and Tim McMinn from Oxfam.
