About this event

Bare Facts: Human Rights Bare Facts return to Cottiers after our sell out event in April, bringing you another stunning line up of musical talent and inspirational speakers. Human Rights are under the spotlight and Dr Cormac Mac Amhlaigh from Edinburgh University will give a frank talk on the contentious repeal of the Human Rights Act – the real story with no political spin. Our second speaker of the night is film director, Felipe Bustos Sierra, who will provide exclusive clips from his inspirational film Nae Pasaran – an untold story of Chilean solidarity. Scottish factory workers discover that their forgotten gesture of solidarity for Chile 40 years ago had incredible consequences. Winner of the Silver Mikeldi Award for Best Documentary at ZINEBI 2014, Spain Winner of the Best Documentary Award at Cortiamo 2014, Italy. With music from folk punk songstress, Chrissy Barnacle and award winning folk singer/songwriter, Karine Polwart, to stir your soul this is a night not to be missed. Doors open at 6.30pm. All proceeds from the event, after costs, will be donated to the following charities: Social Bite and the Scottish Action For Refugees. Speaker Bios Cormac Mac Amhlaigh is Lecturer in Public Law at the University of Edinburgh. He holds a Ph.d in law from the European University Institute in Florence (Italy), having previously studied law at Queen’s University Belfast (N. Ireland), The University of Zaragoza (Spain), and University College Dublin (Ireland). His research is primarily based in the field of constitutional law at both national and supranational levels, and includes research in the protection of human rights and constitutional reform at the UK and European levels and has published in these areas. He has also provided expert commentary in the media on matters of contemporary political and constitutional interest and has worked with and advised central and regional governments, government agencies and civil society groups on a variety of public law-related issues. Felipe Bustos Sierra a Chilean-Belgian filmmaker with Debasers Filums, a film production company in Edinburgh. Felipe has directed fiction and documentary short films, including "Three-Legged Horses" and "Nae Pasaran”, with the Scottish Documentary Institute. He was born in Brussels to an exiled Chilean journalist and those circumstances have heavily influenced his work. Felipe is currently in production of his first feature-length film, “Nae Pasaran”, which documents the humanitarian and political impact of the 1970s boycott of Chilean military engines by Scottish factory workers in protest against the brutal dictatorship of General Pinochet. The film is expected to be released in 2017. /
