For years, Amnesty International has informed the world about human rights, and tales of the oppressed and forgotten. Standing up for causes involving racism, execution of innocents, and the unfair situations regarding court representation. When we think about human rights, (particulary those like myself living in a capitalist civilization) we don’t necessarily see the rest of the worlds struggle to obtain freedom. This piece illustrates just that by contrasting illusive and clear representations of freedom. Borrowing symbolic and street art from artists like BLU and Banksy, this piece shows us that even though freedom may be suppressed at times, and we might suffer a great deal along the way to obtain it; it always prevails.
Freedom Week takes place August 1 -7, and with that said; this incredible piece of work directed by Carlos Lascano, with accompanying music by composers Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe, can conclude our thoughts.
