10 The Right to Freedom of Thought

Article 18

Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Directed by Mark Cousins & Tilda Swinton

Presented in the form of letter to her 8 year old son, Tilda Swinton explains why the freedom of thought is so important to her.  Swinton and Mark Cousins make a passionate call for creativity and a defence of the visual arts, calling for a level playing field in film exhibition so that magical, otherworldly cinema has a chance of being seen.
