PRAGUE: The international human rights doc fest One World, running 5 – 14 March 2018 in Prague, will screen 12 films in its main competition programme.

The films in the international competition look at social issues, adolescence, finding one’s place in the world, coming to terms with death and struggling with one’s own identity. The Netherlands has a strong presence, with three films in the competition section, and Northern Europe is especially well-represented overall, with more than half of the competition titles.
