Harold Chapman at the Isle of Wight Film Festival 2014
Aug 2014 31

Harold Chapman has just returned from the Isle of Wight Film Festival where he had the honour of being one of the judges for the Short Film Competition.
“The Last Killing” by Satinder Kaur was selected as the winner of the Best Human Rights Short which “Invisible” won in 2012. “The Last Killing”, which explores the “disappearances” of Sikhs in the Punjab at the hands of the police during the 1990s, followed the story of a Sikh policeman turned whistleblower who put his whole life on the line to pursue justice for the victims. It was essential viewing, not only because the story is on-going, but because it shows how hard it is to stand up to injustice – and how vital, if anything is to change in the world.
My thanks to festival director Bruce Webb and the team for putting on another great and hugely hospitable festival.
