In honor of International Human Rights Day (Dec. 10), the Program on Negotiation (PON) – a consortium of faculty, students, and staff at Harvard, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tufts University, and other area universities – together with Harvard Friends of Amnesty International, the Human Rights Program, and the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, is sponsoring a special advance screening of “Hotel Rwanda” today (Dec. 9) at 9 p.m. at the Harvard Film Archive, 24 Quincy St. “Hotel Rwanda” is the true story of Paul Rusesabagina, a hotel manager in Rwanda who saved more than 1,200 people in the face of unspeakable actions that killed over 1 million people in only three months. Antonia Chayes, visiting professor of international politics and law at the Fletcher School at Tufts, will lead a discussion of the film. This event is free, though seating is limited.
