Left on Purpose (2017 Programme Launch)

Be the first to get your hands on the Document 2017 brochure at our official programme launch.  Featuring highlights from this year’s programme and a screening of Justin Schein’s controversial documentary, Left on Purpose.

“A bonfire of documentary ethics”, Left on Purpose collides radical politics, mental illness, addiction and the ageing process. Ultimately, it exposes the ethical dilemma at the heart of documentary filmmaking. And it tells the story of a passionate man marginalised by a changing world.

Now in its 15th year, Document Human Rights Film Festival is known for bold and provocative programming, interrogating the form and content of Human rights documentary with open and inclusive debate.

Admission is free but ticketed.

Screening as part of Scalarama Glasgow 2017.
