Cinema, it seems, is interested in human rights.Among the 11 million results turning up in an online search for documentary films on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (arguably the main reason "rights" are a matter of discussion at all) are Geneva's International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Mobile Film Festival.What the film does do is provide a precis of the process behind the negotiations.Damen also sketches the dynamic among the three national representatives who sat on the newly formed Human Rights Commission America's Eleanor Roosevelt, China's Pen-Chun Chang and Lebanon's Charles Malik meeting in 1947 to draft an International Bill of Human Rights, which eventually came to be the UDHR.
