PEACE MEDIATION & DIALOGUE
When war and violence have destroyed trust between people in a society, the first aim is to restore confidence and dialogue between them. Giving insight into the mechanisms and actors of this process is a recurrent theme in True Heroes Films.
One of the most horrible human rights violations is torture.
True Heroes Films collaborates with partners such as the UN and major NGOs like OMCT and APT. The films and projects we do are not only meant to give insight into the torture phenomenon but also to document resources for the prevention and treatment.
Besides training and filming human rights defenders in the field we also collaborate with THE Port, Global Humanitarian Lab and CERN to innovate and find technical solutions for humanitarian issues and human rights work. We take part in the Hackathons with outreach support and visualisation of solutions to bring it back to the people who need it. We share our knowledge of the daily practise of human rights advocacy in the field.
The protective and supportive potential of international recognition - such as awards - is confirmed again and again in the global human rights movement. THF supports award ceremonies with not only filmed portraits of Human Rights Defenders, but also live multi-camera broadcast, graphics and divers audio-visual promotion.
We created a database of all existing international awards ,and are working on a database of
laureates. Please visit the "Digest" and take the opportunity to give outstanding human rights defenders the recognition and protection they deserve.
