Human Rights Counseling Center of Dankook University (DKU) held a movie night on November 22, at Law Building with Human Rights Library of National Human Rights Commission of the Republic of Korea. The center, established on September 2017, tried to encourage Dankookians (students of DKU) to have sensitivity on human rights through the movie night. The movie, ‘Fly, Penguin,’ produced by National Human Rights Commission, depicts mediocre Koreans’ daily lives. By its realistic stories, the movie tells that there are some violent circumstances that offend human rights in our daily lives.
After watching the movie, Professor Min Yoon-yeong, the head of DKU Human Rights Counseling Center, asked Dankookians about their opinions about the movie and shared them with what is around our lives. One interesting point of this movie night is that the DKU Human Rights Center gave out snacks to the participants and there was a vegetarian menu to let vegetarians enjoy the event just like non-vegetarians. The movie night commemorated the World Human Rights Day on December 10, the day the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was announced and adopted.
