Can Art Stop a Bullet?
Online Screening of William Kelly Documentary
Kingston For Human Rights (KFHR) presents award-winning artist William Kelly's highly-acclaimed documentary, "Can Art Stop a Bullet?" for Kingston's Seniors Festival this October.
Each year the KFHR committee holds a children’s poster art competition for Kingston schools and colleges to help raise awareness of the UN's Declaration of Human Rights Charter in the local curriculum. The artwork in this year’s online exhibition responds to the theme: Freedom.
The posters seek to showcase the children’s understanding of Freedom through the powerful medium of art. An online presentation of children's artworks will be shown, followed by the screening of the highly acclaimed William Kelly documentary, "Can Art Stop a Bullet?", including a pre-recorded filmmaker Q & A.
Filmed on five continents, with contributions from over 20 artists, thinkers and activists, this documentary explores the power of art to take a stand against violence in the world.
