Standing Up for Freedom – Amnesty International at 50

You have probably read, seen or heard that Amnesty International, the international non-governmental organisation whose stated mission is to conduct research and generate action to prevent and end grave abuses of human rights, and to demand justice for those whose rights have been violated is fifty years old this month.

In order to celebrate this landmark Eallin, a Prague based motion art production company has produced this wonderful animated video. 

It is an emotive piece, which as well as celebrating the achievements that Amnesty International has had over the last 50 years, reminds us that the struggle for freedom is not over for many people.

It is directed by Carlos Lascano with music by Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe.
