The 60 films in the festival are grouped into eight thematic sections and focus on human rights, minority issues and social exclusion. Eight Bratislava venues are presenting films covering issues of political rights, the battle for women’s rights, anti-Semitism and Nazism, suppression of minorities, natural disasters, post-civil war life and handicapped people finding their place in life. Accompanying events include discussions with a former journalist working in Chechnya, Jaromír Štětina, as well as a representative of the World Congress of Uyghurs.

The festival culminates with a jam session on November 27 featuring La3no Cubano, a Slovak band playing ethno music, along with Transglobal Refugees Crew, a band from the Rohovce compound. More information is available at www.jedensvet.sk.
