Movies Reflect The Human Rights Interests Of Activist Thor Halvorssen

The human rights activist Thor Halvorssen is best known as the founder and public face of the Human Rights Foundation and Oslo Freedom Forum. The development of both the Human Rights Foundation and Oslo Freedom Forum reflect the ways in which Thor Halvorssen is willing to work in many different areas of technology and provide a successful basis for his work to shine a light on the different aspects of success achieved in fighting the problems of lost human rights. Alongside his work as an activist, Thor has also been developing a successful career as a film producer working in both the documentary and fiction areas with great success for the career he has already built.

Thor believes it is his duty to seek out new ways of bringing awareness to the issues of human rights being taken away from individuals, but has little time for focusing his work on the traditionally democratic regions of the world and instead seeks to assist those living under the harshest conditions within closed societies. In a bid to make sure those living within closed societies have their stories told to the wider public Thor Halvorssen established the Moving Picture Institute that works to fund movies explaining the issues of human rights to a major audience.

For Thor Halvorssen the movies and films he produces have the chance to inform as well as educate through the use of documentary style films that have already given the Venezuelan-born New York-based producer a good reputation within the movie industry. Halvorssen has produced many award-winning and commercially successful documentaries he believes provide information on major human rights abuses and the will of communities to stand up to their oppressors. The work of Halvorssen is not limited to documentary productions, but has recently moved into areas of fiction that he feels can also express the issues facing people around the world and raise awareness of human rights abuses taking place around the world.
