HUMAN RIGHTS NOW!

(1988, 180 mins, Amnesty International/HBO, Directed by Larry Jordan)

Following the success of Amnesty's "Conspiracy Of Hope" US tour, Amnesty decided to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights with a world tour that would touch down in every continent. Amnesty stalwarts Sting and Peter Gabriel were joined by Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Youssou N'Dour and Tracy Chapman for the 20-concert tour. During the course of the tour, they were joined by an array of guests including Bono, Joan Baez, Ravi Shankar, k.d. lang, Pat Metheny. This exhilarating film presents the tour's grand finale concert in Buenos Aires augmented by highlights from the preceding 6 weeks of performances and campaigning about human rights in exotic locales throughout the world. A highlight of the concerts were the musical collaborations. Sting and Springsteen duetting on "The River" and "Every Breath You Take"... All the musicians singing Bob Marley's "Get Up, Stand Up" and Bob Dylan's "Chimes Of Freedom"... This TV special only ever aired on HBO in December 1988 - and has never been repeated since. Never on VHS or DVD. First time shown anywhere since December 1988! This is the film's World Theatrical Premiere.
