Humanitas Prize Finalist: Documentary Category, Southern Rites
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The HUMANITAS Prize was created in 1974 to honor film and television writers whose work explores the human condition in a nuanced, meaningful way which, ultimately, inspires compassion, hope and understanding in the human family.
HUMANITAS believes film and television writers have enormous power to break down the walls of ignorance, racism and hatred which can separate us by exploring the hopes and fears of human beings who are very different in culture, race, lifestyle, political loyalties and religious beliefs to find our common humanity.
A signature HUMANITAS story challenges us to use our freedom to grow and develop, confronts us with our individual responsibility and examines the consequences of our choices.
