LAB PROJECT:

PORTRAITS

This project is giving visibility to people who assert their humanist values and show us how courage and moral certainty can be driving forces in our societies. Numerous filmmakers will produce short profiles of those who are working to effect positive change; the aim of the lab is to build an international campaign movement around the film components to share them online and offline.
