Human Rights award for the author
to Hassan Fazili


Hassan Fazili, will be able to travel Lugano for the awarding ceremony of the Human Rights Award for the Author 2019, assigned by the Lugano Human Rights Film Festival.

This is a great achievement, since Hassan Fazili has been living for some years in a refugee center in Germany, from which, for personal security reasons, he can rarely go out.

Hassan Fazili will be present on Friday 11 October at 9 pm (at the Corso cinema) at the awards ceremony that precedes the screening of his movie Midnight Traveler (evening in collaboration with Doctors Without Borders), and on Saturday 12 October at 2.45 pm (at the Iride cinema) for the screening of some short films yet unreleased in Switzerland, made by Fazili together with his wife Fatima and a director friend, Abouzar Soltani, also on the run.
