 In 2014 Norway celebrates the Bicentenary of The Norwegian Constitution, the world’s second oldest prevailing constitution.

An important objective of the celebration is to generate debate about the main challenges facing democracy in the future, and to stimulate reflection, engagement and participation in democratic processes.

During the One World 2014 International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival, three films will be screened at Norway House as a part of the celebration.



The Road to Tawergha / Ashraf Al Mashharawi / Libya / 2013 / 42 min

Tuesday 25 March / 11:30 am / Norway House, Rue Archimède 17, 1000 Brussels


About the film:
In 2011, when the war began against the Gaddafi regime in Libya, the city of Misrata became the main centre of the uprising. To suppress the riots, Gaddafi sent militants to Misrata from the city of Tawergha who committed a series of crimes and atrocities against the local people. With the end of the war, the ethnically diverse population of Tawergha became the victims of revenge, and for three years now thousands of them are living as refugees. The film illustrates the difficult situation of the country in which justice has yet to be served and features interviews with activists, representatives of the state and victims searching for what the process of reconciliation has so far blocked.

Discussion after the film: Constitutional Processes and Reconciliation - Transitional Justice in Post Arab Spring. With Elham Saudi, Director of Libyan Lawyers for Justice in Libya, Mattia Toaldo, Policy Fellow, European Council on Foreign Relations, Alvaro Benlloch Miranda, Libya Desk, European External Action Service (EEAS). Moderator: Simon Panek, Executive Director of People in Need. Organized in cooperation with the Mission of Norway to the EU.

A light sandwich lunch will be served after the discussion

The Little Guerrilla Girl / Giancarlo Bocchi / Italy-UK-Burma / 2013 / 40 min

Friday 28 March / 11:30 am / Norway House, Rue Archimède 17, 1000 Brussels


About the film:
The Karen people in Myanmar have been fighting for freedom for 70 years – first against Japan, and today against the government. The bloody clashes for independence take place mainly in the impenetrable jungle area near the border with Thailand. The current easing of the regime has not helped the Karen people, who still live in poverty, fear and suffering. The fate of this oppressed ethnic group is also experienced first-hand by a young girl named Zoya Phan, who had to flee to London in order to survive. The film follows Zoya as she returns to her native country to attend the funeral of her murdered father and to record the stories of soldiers and locals.

Discussion after the film: Marie Havlínová (Myanmar projects coordinator, People in Need),  Ranieri Sabatucci (Head of Unit, European Commission) and other guests. Organized by People in Need in cooperation with the Mission of Norway to the EU
