“Human Rights” is a testimonial documentary that deals with the experience of seven people belonging to the LGTBQ + group who, due to their identity, gender or orientation, have had to flee their countries when they were unable to lead a life with dignity where they were not mistreated. physically and psychologically. They and their families were in danger; some were fired from their jobs, threatened, segregated, to the point in some cases of fear for their own lives.
Venezuela, Nicaragua, Colombia, Russia, Honduras, Nigeria and Cuba are their countries of origin.
"Human Rights" invites us to learn about their idiosyncrasy, their fears and insecurities, their motivations and hopes, their clean gaze towards a future where the word freedom is a reality and not a utopia. They tell us about the differences between their cities and ours, what unites us and separates us, and how terribly unfair, as well as inhuman, which is to forcibly leave their country, city, family, friends, neighbors, jobs, studies, all in all, to start a life from scratch in an unknown place.
The motivation of the documentary "Human Rights" is to publicize this reality that many people do not know.
It is necessary to give voice to its protagonists because only they can explain the truth without intermediaries.
What will we contribute to?
The money obtained will be allocated divided into four parts as follows:
-A fourth part will be delivered to the protagonists of the documentary.
-A fourth part will be delivered to the ACATHI.ORG association, an NGO located in Barcelona whose mission is to help and provide a multitude of instruments (social, legal, psychological, training, support, etc.) to migrants and refugees from the LGTBQ + collective.
-A quarter will go to defray the costs incurred during production.
-And the last quarter will go to post-production: editing, correction and sound, subtitles, promotion and dissemination of the documentary.
There is no source of financing other than this crowfunding.

Here I leave you an interview where I talk about my documentary "9Trans" and about the motivations that I had when doing it, which are the same that I have now with "Human Rights":
"When I read or listen to the constant news in the media of the 70 countries of the world where LGBTQ + people are persecuted and punished, where in many countries we are imprisoned, tortured, stoned, murdered, or marginalized, mistreated, insulted or hit, then I think: we are all called in a certain way to shout and say stop! My way is through the documentaries. "
Liceo Magazine: "9Trans is an allegation against transphobia. Minimalist, sincere and emphatic"
The documentary is fully recorded, and is in the process of being edited. I plan to finish it around September of this year 2020.
