Human Rights Watch Film Festival London...

Is it cool to care? On one hand cool can be defined by cynicism, its proponents characterised by being detached and aloof. Think of the Fonz and his nihilistic nonchalance, the iciness exuded in his ‘aaaay’ - which is surely a distant relative of our very own ‘whatever’. On the other hand, cool also implies knowing what’s going on, living in the loop (hey, you’re not reading Lecool for nothing, right?). And, for all his ability to start seemingly out of order jukeboxes with the slam of a fist, Fonzarelli sometimes comes off as pretty stupid; and there’s definitely nothing desirable about dumb. The annual Human Rights Watch International Film Festival - your handy one stop shop for all the issues it’s important to be across - is, therefore, a must. For, once you’re hip to what’s happening, you’ll find caring is not only cool but crucial…
