It’s Friday, so it’s time for another installment of foreign-policy-themed movies worth watching. This week we’re looking at films about the fight for human rights.
We follow three rules in our selections. First, we stick to English-language movies. So you won’t see great films like First They Killed My Fatheror Life Is Beautiful below. Second, we only include films on these summer lists once.
We’ve already recommended Gandhi, Hotel Rwanda, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Salvador, Schindler’s List, The Killing Fields, and many classic POW movies. Third, each recommendation has to be available to rent or stream online.
