Law & Film


Part of CALS' mission as a human rights organisation is to make the law more accessible to people experiencing rights violations. One of the ways that we are able to complement traditional legal work is through the medium of film. At its core, law is about story telling. We take compelling stories from our clients and develop affidavits which we submit to courts. Film can take the law out of the court room and help to distribute information as widely as possible to those affected by human rights violations. For this reason, CALS has been pioneering the integration of law and film since 2012. Below are some examples of the films we have produced.
