'Stories on Human Rights' is on view at Museum Alex Mylona - Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens, Greece

The film will be on view from May 29 to July 31

Instead of a traditional screening of the film, the museum prepared it as a video exhibition.
Large stills from the film, as well as the interviews of the filmmakers and the artists, were hung on the walls, translated into greek.
A plasma TV, showing the film as a loop, and all the greek versions of the books of the writers, were available for the public's consultation.
A video projection room was also settled up, for the film to be shown on a large screen as a loop.
The day of the opening, on May 29, was characterized by the presence of many friends of ART for The World, as well as of Greek video artists and filmmakers.
The Director of the Museum and Curator of the show, Denys Zacharopoulos, has given a dinner on the roof garden of the museum, with a beautiful view of the Acropolis.
