Benedict Cumberbatch & Other British Stars Fight to Save the Human Rights Act

Benedict Cumberbatch & Other British Stars Fight to Save the Human Rights Act

Liberty, the UK based human rights organisation, has released a series of videos highlighting real life stories of social injustice and experiences of using human rights laws. Directed and edited by Farrah Drabu of DNR Films the campaign uses celebrities Benedict Cumberbatch, Simon Callow, David Harewood, Indira Varma & Vanessa Redgrave to give a voice to ordinary peoples’ stories and raise awareness of the important role the Human Rights Act plays.

Drawing on their previous working relationship and with a shared ideology of using film as a tool for education to entertain and spread a message, Drabu enlisted the help of Three Wise Monkeys to complete the colour grade and audio mix for the set of films.  

Post producer Carl Grinter says, "Liberty are one of the great organisations in this country able to apply pressure for individuals and groups to maintain a balanced and a fair society for all. Saving the Human Rights Act is essential to maintaining a fair voice for everyone in a country without a constitution. To be asked to work on this project by Farrah was a great honour for us. Hopefully the small part we played will help make a big difference."
