Human Rights Day 2009 – Wherever you live in this world, embrace diversity - end discrimination
Here's a press release from the UN about a Human Rights Day commercial we produced recently. We're so happy with the positive reception it received and the opportunity to support such a good cause.
On Human Rights Day, people from South-East Asia show how diversity can be a powerful voice against discrimination regardless of language barriers. “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights”, says Thai Pop singer and actor Khun Kob (Songsit Rungnoppakunsi). Children, a woman, an elderly couple and a worker, lend their voice to stress the need for opportunities, dignity, respect and equality. They announce an interpretation of the first sentence of the UDHR in their own language – Thai, Lao, Tagalog, Malay and English.
The PSA was produced by Benetone Films; created by Young & Rubicam Thailand and directed by Razneesh Ghai as a contribution for Human Rights Day in collaboration with OHCHR – Regional Office for South-East Asia and UNDP Regional Center Bangkok.
We thank them, the cast and the production crew for contributing their time and efforts to this production.
