THE CLEANERS
Wednesday 13 March 2019
Royal Institute of British Architects
66 Portland Place, London W1B 1NR

6:15 PM Doors Open
7:00 PM Film screening, Q&A and drinks reception 

Please join us for a screening of THE CLEANERS at our London Film Benefit on Wednesday 13 March 2019 at the Royal Institute of British Architects as we celebrate the power of film to raise awareness of human rights issues and the power of personal stories to galvanise action around the world. 

This compelling documentary follows five “cleaners” in the Philippines whom social media giants, including Facebook and Twitter, hire to undertake the highly sensitive work of viewing and removing millions of images and videos from online platforms every day. Exposing the extreme and often life-threatening impact of censorship capable of disappearing entire conversations, perspectives, and events from world view, The Cleaners expertly reveals how critics of the US president, activists in Turkey, and the Rohingya in Myanmar are impacted by Silicon Valley outsourcing critical decisions on free speech. It exemplifies how a lack of regulation and accountability can lead to serious risks for human rights.

The London Film Benefit will mark the start of the 2019 Human Rights Watch London Film Festival which runs from 14-22 March in several venues throughout London. See more at https://ff.hrw.org/london.

Human Rights Watch is one of the world’s leading independent organisations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights. Through our Film Festival we bear witness to human rights violations and create a forum for courageous individuals on both sides of the lens to empower audiences with the knowledge that personal commitment can make a difference.
