“Character & Story” before “Issue” for Amnesty International

In Washington D.C., Brian Evans of Amnesty International Death Penalty Abolition Campaign speaks with co-producer Patty Kim and director Michael Collins after a screening of Give Up Tomorrow. Amnesty co-presented the film at the Reel Independent Film Extravaganza in October 2012 in recognition of the World Day Against Death Penalty.

Brian explains that what attracted him to Give Up Tomorrow initially at the Good Pitch was “character and story” before the “issues”. “To me it’s much more compelling because it is not a film about human rights, it’s a film about people dealing with a human rights situation.”
