In 2011 Student Verzio invites students and teachers to watch, discuss and challenge contemporary social and human rights issues via documentaries. 5 recent releases will be presented free at special morning screenings with follow-up discussions. This year’s selection of films raise questions about society, social interaction and the environment. What will happen to nuclear waste once it’s buried for good? What does home and safety mean to us? How does Facebook change our social life? How does the Internet help spread extreme ideologies and how far are they from us?
Lots of issues to discuss! If it’s hard to choose, choose several!
