An amazing lineup of filmmakers mark the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Lansdowne Productions and the Scottish Documentary Institute have gathered together some of the most talented filmmakers and visual artists based in Scotland today. Collectively they have created the feature length documentary, the New Ten Commandments.

United by a single theme – Human Rights in Scotland – the film communicates a variety of artistic visions whilst exploring the real life stories of those for whom the Universal Declaration has intimate meaning. With testimony of human rights abuses sitting alongside tales of human rights recognition, the film is both an emotionally powerful journey and an exercise in passionate filmmaking of the highest calibre.

The directors: Kenny Glenaan, Douglas Gordon, Nick Higgins, Irvine Welsh, Mark Cousins, Tilda Swinton, Sana Bilgrami, Alice Nelson, Doug Aubrey, David Graham Scott, Anna Jones. Composer: Jim Sutherland
