Of the nine films to be featured at Kino/Folkets Bio in Lund, five -- Fever at Dawn, Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution, A Quiet Inquisition, Mustang, and Boy & the World -- will have their Swedish premiere.
The four days of films are split into four human rights themes: people in exile, racial intolerance, women’s rights, and coming to terms with history.
